When there's talk about sexual harassment, people usually think of female victims and male perpetrators. It’s a common assumption, especially since women are three times as likely to report experiencing sexual harassment at work, according to a 2014 Angus Reid poll.

About 43 per cent of Canadian women reported they have been sexually harassed at work, compared with 12 per cent of men, found the poll of 1,504 people.
