• Sex harassment widespread in Australian police


    SYDNEY: Almost half of the women working for Australia’s national police force say they have been sexually harassed on the job, according to a report released Monday calling for urgent change. The review of the workplace culture of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) also found that more than 60 percent of staff — men and women — reported being bullied. “In the areas of sexual harassment and bullying, urgent action is required,” the report’s author, former sex discrimination commissioner, Elizabeth Broderick said. A survey carried out for the report found that 46 percent of women and 20 percent of men said they had been sexually harassed in the workplace in the last five years.
