 A 2015 study from Cosmopolitan found that 1 in 3 respondents had experienced workplace harassment from a supervisor or officemate, and 71 percent of those women chose not to report it, fearing retribution. Despite the progress we’ve made in recognizing the issue, women have a lot to fear in the workplace. Homicide is the second-leading cause of workplace-related deaths for women, and the AFL-CIO estimates that 36,500 employees are sexually assaulted on the job each year, a majority of them female. 

      Of my city the worst that men will ever say is this:
          You took little children away from the sun and the dew,
          And the glimmers that played in the grass under the great sky,
          And the reckless rain; you put them between walls
          To work, broken and smothered, for bread and wages,
          To eat dust in their throats and die empty-hearted
          For a little handful of pay on a few Saturday nights.     

Carl Sandburg
