Not just for a job or promotion, but for a raise, or even an opportunity? Ever proposed an idea, only to have it stolen by another colleague? Or been told to “lean in,” yet then been described as “too aggressive” when you did? No little girl dreams of working her way up to middle management, only to stay stuck there. Being a woman at work is different. But let’s be clear: different is not inferior.

Sexual harassment isn’t about sex. It’s about power, and the inappropriate use of that power to threaten your economic security on the job. 1 in 5 women report being sexual harassed at work. Report. That means that the real numbers are much higher, and it’s almost inevitable that you will experience sexual harassment at least once in your career.
Knowledge is power. Arm yourself with a thorough understanding of gender dynamics, the law, and how to respond, report, and support your sisters.
