Harassment and sexual harassment in the workplace has been going on for years. And it is not limited to women. Men have suffered this also. I have worked for two large corporations and have seen it and been on the receiving end of it.

I am an identical twin. In grade school the older boys would gang up on us and throw rocks . The school system did nothing to stop it. We learned when to defend ourselves and when to run like hell.

I am a college graduate and a licensed pilot. This did not sit well with managers of the large companies. One manager threatened to beat me up just for the heck of it. With the other company a manager withheld my paycheck until I shaved off my beard. His manager supported this even when the Human Recourse Manual did not address it. I was afraid of losing my job.

I sympathize with the women. . Men in high positions and big egos can destroy you.
