A new study has revealed that gender harassment with no sexual advances is also harmful to women's physical and emotional health. Gender harassment leads to negative personal and professional outcomes too and, as such, is a serious form of sex discrimination. In their view, there is a case for interpreting existing legislation as including gender harassment, so that it is recognized as a legitimate and serious form of sex-based discrimination in the workplace. They said that nine out of ten harassed women had experienced gender harassment primarily in the absence of sexual advances in the workplace.
