  • The positive alternative to sexual harassment

    Okay, I know I said I wouldn't write about this subject anymore but it has exploded on this side of the Atlantic. I reckon we're looking at thousands of "empowered women" coming forward to point the finger at hundreds of men in positions of authority:

    Wrt. the thousands of women, what is their percentage of the populations in question?
    For example, how many US women does it take to make up 1 % of US women?

      According to the US Census Bureau (census is done every 10 years) as of 2010 the female population in the US was 156,964,212. But that's all females regardless of age. You specified women. Given that females make up 50.8% of the population (in 2010) and 74,181,467 people in the US were under 18, a fair guess is that 37,684,185 (37,684,185.236) are girls (math: 74,181,467 x 0.508). So, as of 2010, there were 119,280,027 women in the US (math: 156,964,212 - 37,684,185). So how many women would it take to make up 1% of US women? Answer: 1,192,800 (1,192,800.27) (math: 119,280,027 x 0.01); approximately.

        I think his point is that... thousands of women making all this noise is not really significant in a place with millions of women... I don't know...

          Thank you.
          The question is: at what point does "metoo" really transform into "yesallwomen"?
          If 2 million women report harassment, that still means that 99 % of women do not experience harassment.

            Indeed. Now that we have a figure - ca. 2 million - we can calculate what percentage of 1 % the "metoo" group is.

              Easy... All of them...

              I have briefly talked about the topic with few women, including my feminist mother, and all of them have told me that they have being sexually harassed but never reported it...

              I have not talked with men about it, not sure if I do that, but under the new standard of sexual harrasment I am not surprice if all men too have being sexually harassed...

              At least, under the new standard, I can tell you that I was in person sexually harassed... What about you?
