High-Flying Women Bullied at Work

Union's chairwoman Cecilia Fahlberg

Every fifth female boss is harassed in the workplace on the grounds of her gender.

In comparison only three per cent of men experience the same problem.

The findings come in an investigation by Statistics Sweden that was commissioned by the national trade union called Union.

Most cases occurred in male-dominated environments and often co-workers and male bosses were the main perpetrators, reports Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

The report says poor knowledge on what makes a good leader is behind many of the problems.

With so many of today’s bosses retiring in the next decade, says Union’s chairwoman, it’s important to bring in better leadership practises to keep women in higher positions.
