Facts about sexual harassment in the legal field

It is not uncommon for workers in Arizona to be the subject of sexual harassment. A survey that had over 7,000 participants found that sexual harassment is a common problem in the legal field.

It found that 36.6% of female participants had experienced such harassment while roughly half said that they had experienced bullying.
