PARIS — Half of women scientists worldwide have been victims of workplace sexual harassment at some point in their careers, reported a survey published Thursday, March 16.
The poll, which included more than 5,000 researchers across 117 countries, showed 49 percent of women scientists saying that they had “personally experienced at least one situation” of harassment.
Nearly half of the cases took place after the MeToo movement emerged in 2017, according to the survey conducted by the Ipsos polling firm on behalf of the L’Oreal Foundation.
For 65 percent of the women, the harassment had a negative impact early in their careers. Yet only one in five victims reported her experience to the organization concerned.
