Global Study Reveals One of Three Female Lawyers Harassed at Work

One of three female lawyers is being harassed by their bosses, the world's largest survey of sexual harassment in the legal profession revealed.

The report, published by the London-based International Bar Association, found that 75 percent of the harassment victims didn’t speak up or file complaints at work.

"In three-quarters of sexual harassment cases, the perpetrator was not sanctioned," the 130-page report said.

"In more than half of cases, the situation was unchanged or deteriorated."

Abuses are "driving people away from their workplaces and the profession as a whole," the IBA said.

"These findings... cannot be ignored,” it added.
