One third of women have experienced sexual harassment or abuse in their workplace, a new poll from PBS NewsHour, NPR, and Marist Poll found.

Respondents were asked if they had personally experienced sexual harassment or abuse from another person where they work:

  • 22 percent of all respondents said yes.
  • 77 percent of all respondents said no.
  • 35 percent of women said yes.
  • 65 percent of women said no.
  • 9 percent of men said yes.
  • 91 percent of men said no.

The majority of respondents said their employer does enough to protect against harassment and abuse:

  • 87 percent of all said yes.
  • 88 percent of men said yes.
  • 85 percent of women said yes.

The pollsters also asked who is more likely to be believed in the case of workplace sexual harassment or abuse:

  • 64 percent said the accuser.
  • 18 percent said the accused.

Marist, in collaboration with NPR and PBS NewsHour, contacted 1,019 adults by phone from Nov. 13-15, and the poll has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
