Japan A Sexual Harassment Hotbed?

Japan might be a potential powder keg in the coming years for sexual harassment lawsuits if recent survey results from the country's National Personnel Agency are any indication. Almost 94% of the nearly 2,000 female government workers who were surveyed said they had experienced some form of sexual harassment. A shocking 6.2% said they had been raped or almost raped, and one in six said they had encountered demands for sexual favors from a boss or co-worker.
