9 in 10 Boston women report workplace sexual harassment is a problem, poll says

Senator Elizabeth Warren recently said she experienced sexual harassment when she was working earlier in her career as a law instructor.

One in four Bostonians say they have experienced sexual harassment, according to a new poll, but 86 percent call sexual harassment in the workplace a problem.
