Sexual Harassment: An Issue in Singapore?

In the wake of recent high-profile sexual harassment allegations across various industries in the U.S. and Britain, the hashtag ‘#metoo’ went viral as the public took to social media to share their personal experiences.

More than half (55%) of our survey respondents view sexual misconduct as “quite common” or “very common” in the Singapore workplace, with young working adults between the ages of 25 and 34 more likely to find it prevalent (62%). One in 10 Singaporeans find sexual misbehaviour very common.

One in four (25%) Singaporeans say that they have been subjected to or know someone who has been a victim of sexual harassment in a Singapore workplace.
