Workplace sexual harassment is down, but sexism is up

Women in Massachusetts can take comfort in knowing that workplace sexual harassment is on the decline. This is according to a study based on a survey of more than 500 women conducted from 2016 to 2018. The women questioned said fondling, leering and ogling, and other types of unwanted sexual attention occurred less frequently during the two-year period studied. However, the same study found that sexism is on the rise.

Court brief sides with transgender worker

Transgender workers in Massachusetts and throughout the United States should be protected by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This is according to a brief submitted to the Supreme Court by the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund. The brief claims that discriminating against a transgender person is tantamount to sex discrimination, which Title VII prohibits. It backs up its claim by pointing to favorable rulings in 35 federal district courts over the past 20 years.
