But of course!

We would die out as a species if men didn’t harass women at work!  D’oh!  Why did I never see it before?

A Russian judge threw out a sexual harrassment case because:

“If we had no sexual harassment we would have no children,” the judge ruled.

Possibly even sadder than this statement is when the article states that: “only two women have won sexual harassment cases since the collapse of the Soviet Union, one in 1993 and the other in 1997.”  Why work at all?  Shouldn’t the companies in Russia be giving women bonuses -they get a salary to do their job, but where’s the money for the sexual favors they’re obliged to give?   Tomorrow’s meetup on gender neutral workplaces should be interesting and I’m hoping for a discussion on harassment in the workplace as well.
