The crime of sexual harassment

Half of prison service staff personally experience sexually explicit language and sexual jokes and stories every week while at work, according to an internal survey of workers.

Female staff are more likely to experience unwanted persistent attention, bullying related to gender and inappropriate or unwanted touching.

What did anyone expect what with their being surrounded by criminals?

  2. What percentage of prison inmates experience sexual harrasment of a considerably worse variety I wonder? Not, that I’m not a bleeding heart liberal, but I do think that inmates ought to be able to complete their sentance without being assaulted.

  3. I could only read the abstract where I saw “that this problem is not as ingrained in the UK.” I am not sure that this is the same thing as relatively low.
