Since 1997, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has received nearly 2 million workplace discrimination complaints. These complaints are typically the result of employees who believe that they have been discriminated against on the basis of their race, gender, religion, disability, and/or pregnancy. Furthermore, well over 50% of women have admitted to being sexually harassed in some form or another at the workplace. While it’s safe to say that things have certainly gotten better in the last century regarding sexual harassment and discrimination within the workplace, there is still a lot of work to do.
