Its funny, in the article they show a waitress from Hooters.I'm not saying that waitresses from Hooters should be sexually harassed but at the same time some establishments seem to establish an unwritten rule that only sexy is allowed there kind of thing.

The horrors of sexual harassment
SHE was being stalked and sexually harassed by a male contractor for weeks but when she complained to her employer, they told her to "Get on with it". A few weeks later she woke up bleeding and bruised with no memory of a night out with her colleagues. Ref. Source 7
Gender perceptions of sexual harassment can influence workplace policy effectiveness
Although 98 percent of all organizations have sexual harassment policies, sexual harassment remains an issue in the workplace. Researchers are evaluating how employees' interpretations of sexual harassment policies can invalidate the purpose of the policies. They found that employee perceptions of how exactly 'sexual harassment' is defined by a company's policy can, in effect, eliminate or reshape the meaning of these policies and contradict the norms and values of the companies that try to enforce them. Ref. Source 4e.
30 percent of female physicians report sexual harassment
In a survey of high-achieving physician-scientists, nearly a third of women reported experiencing sexual harassment. As women now make up about half of medical school students, the researchers emphasize the importance of recognizing unconscious bias as well as overtly inappropriate behaviors. Ref. Source 2z.
What I don't like is the double standards in the hierarchy where sexual harassment is concerned. For instance if your the janitor and got caught in this you get instantly fired and the hard hammer on your head but if you are the CEO its like everyone wants to protect the predator and not the victim. The higher you go in the workplace the more protection you get from accusations of sexual harassment.

Yes there is a lot of double standards. IF a guy is accused of sexual harassment it is figured that he is guilty of it no matter what where if a lady is accused of sexual harassment it is like a social stigma that the guy is a issue and a whiner.
