Half of all women in the RAF suffer sexual harassment

A leaked internal report shows that almost half of all women serving in the Royal Air Force have been sexually harassed.

According to the Independent on Sunday, which obtained the report, the official research indicates that more than 1,000 women are enduring or have suffered sexual harassment in the past 12 months.

The survey shows the harrassers are typically two or more male servicemen of a senior rank.

Most of the victims had been groped or subjected to sexually explicit remarks or gestures, but only half of them complained.
