Legal Profession Rife with Sexual Harassment

According to a new survey, the legal profession is (still) rife with sexual harassment.

A survey of more than 8,000 job-seekers by ZipRecruiter found that while 40 percent of women respondents said they had encountered sexual harassment on the job, 59 percent of females who work for a law firm reported such behavior.

The practice of law has a long history of being a male-dominated profession, often dubbed an “old boys’ club.”

One labor economist has even opined that she wouldn’t be surprised if the next industry in the #MeToo movement was the legal field.

Other male-dominated professions such as the transportation industry, warehouse jobs, architecture and engineering are estimated to have more than half of all women working there to have experienced sexual harassment.
