Men say they sexually harass women because it’s fun, in new survey from Promundo.

Because the survey also requested men about their house lives, childhood improvement, and views on society, researchers have been capable of sketch a profile of males who harass ladies in public spaces. Along with being younger, on the wealthier end of the socio-economic spectrum, and usually more educated, harassers are more probably than their friends to have been abused at residence or witnessed abuse towards their mothers. Palestinian males who admitted to committing intimate associate violence have been more more likely to additionally admit to sexual harassment, as have been Lebanese males who maintain sexist beliefs about ladies. These outcomes aren’t notably shocking, but new statistics that seem to prove long-standing beliefs can supply some hope for progress: If there are indeed some commonalities among harassers, advocates stand a greater probability of stopping harassment before it begins.
