The sexual intimidation of working women is recognized as a legal wrong in the United States. From a business standpoint, sexual harassment leads to decreased productivity, low morale, and high employee turnover. Despite the tremendous amount of publicity that this issue has received, blatant harassment continues to occur. The underlying problem involves a power imbalance in the workplace.
