Abstract

A study by Ilies et al. in 20031 reported that the incidence of sexual harassment in academia is second only to the incidence of sexual harassment in the military, and occurs more frequently than in government or the private sector. There are indisputable data regarding the toll sexual harassment takes on the mental and physical health of victims.2–6 In 2016, the rise of the #MeToo movement brought into sharp relief the endemic culture of sexual harassment in our society as a whole, reigniting research to determine where and why harassment is most prevalent and thus to identify better ways to combat this behavior.
