1 In 4 Men Think It’s Okay To Expect Sex From An Employee

A survey conducted on men from eight different countries, including the US, concluded that one out of every four of them think that it’s okay for an employer to expect sex from an employee.

According to Fortune, this survey was conducted by CARE, a non-profit humanitarian agency who decided to publish some of these shocking facts and statistics during International Women’s Day. The survey was conducted on over 9,408 adults from countries such as the US, Australia, Ecuador, India, Egypt, South Africa, and Vietnam. Researchers claim that they chose these countries because they cut across geographical and developmental levels.

Other surprising statistics from CARE include a poll conducted on Ecuador where they asked men if they thought it was appropriate to kiss a colleague without permission during an office party; 21 percent of them said yes. Another statistic from the UK claims that 35 percent of men between the ages of 25 and 34 consider it appropriate to pinch a woman’s butt as a playful gesture.

These polls are disheartening considering the prominence of movements such as Times Up and Me Too, which can make us feel like the world has already changed for the better.

The truth is that the battle for gender equality is still ongoing, and having these results and knowledge can only arm us and make us more prepared for the future. These polls leave it clear that movements centered on women’s issues need to keep evolving, now more than ever.
