The information, media and telecommunications industry is Australia’s worst sector when it comes to sexual harassment, according to a Australian Human Rights Commission survey. Eighty-one per cent of its employees stated they had been sexually harassed in the last five years, despite the sector accounting for just two per cent of the workforce. The number of women who state they have been sexually harassed at work has risen from 21 per cent to 39 per cent over the past six years. Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins says the results of its survey reveal that sexual harassment is "widespread and pervasive".
