Why is it often hard for a woman to say ‘no’ to sexual harassment at work?
There are many reasons why it is hard for a woman to say ‘no’ to sexual harassment:
- She may be afraid she will lose her job, which she needs to support herself and her family.
- She may have been raised to obey and respect the wishes of older men and men in power.
- The man may be a relative, and she may be afraid if she says no or complains he will be made to look bad.
