Amid a growing number of allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, 54 percent of American women say they have experienced unwanted and inappropriate sexual advances from men, an ABC News-Washington Post poll reveals.

Here are the highlights from the survey released on Tuesday:

  • 30 percent of women say they have experienced unwanted sexual advances at work.
  • 23 percent say they have experienced unwanted sexual advances from someone who had influence over their work situation.
  • 95 percent of woman who have experienced unwanted sexual advances at work say male harassers usually go unpunished.
  • 83 percent of the women who were singled out for unwanted workplace-related sexual advances say they're angry about the experience; 64 percent feel intimated by it and 52 percent feel humiliated.

"Those results in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll show the vast extent to which women encounter inappropriate sexual conduct from men across American society — marking the current scandal involving the movie mogul Harvey Weinstein as merely the latest public eruption of a far broader and deeper problem," said a report accompanying the poll results.

The survey, conducted Oct. 12-15, surveyed 1,010 people. Various questions were asked of just women respondents.
