They watched colleagues communication and fixed facts of sexual harassment (whether it be a simple "protection" or direct coercion) *. It was found that women are more vulnerable to sexual harassment, if a team almost equally between men and women. Randy Hodson (Randy Hodson), who led the study, explains this by saying that in the sexually balanced team more opportunities for regular and varied contacts between employees of different sexes - in contrast to the predominantly female (male) staff. It was also found that the higher the position occupied by the woman, the greater the risk of sexual harassment it is exposed: apparently, accustomed to dominate men can not put up with this state * It is about sexual harassment, refusal of which, as well as the adoption of their influences (direct. or indirectly) in the performance of official duties or creates a hostile atmosphere in the team.
