Women much more likely to perceive pay bias

Nearly a third of women (32%) do not think they are making the same pay as men in their organization who have similar experience and qualifications, compared to 12% of men.

Tough new supervisor? That doesn’t prove bias

Snapshot: Has #MeToo made it difficult for men to work with women?

Overall, 51% of adults say an increased focus on sexual harassment has made it harder for men to interact with women at work.
