Nearly 65 percent of women believe that sexual harassment problems are rampant in society, according to a poll released by the Market Research Marketing Strategy Center (MRMSC) of the University of Taipei, Taiwan, on December 10.
Respondents to the poll also indicated their belief that having children has a negative impact on the parent’s workplace, and that gender discrimination still exists despite improvements in terms of stereotypes about men and women.
The investigation was conducted between women aged from 20 to 60 in workplaces and in families.
In addition, over 40 percent said they are dissatisfied with their current average income, and most women believe that it is easier to succeed in the workplace by being single and attractive, and that is also aggravated by sexual harassment.
In families, over 60 percent of women claimed they have been treated fairly by their family members; and, over 87 percent oppose the use of sex determination tests during pregnancies.
Though it is considered that women enjoy more rights than in the past, some 58 percent still feel that there is inequality in society in Taiwan.
