Japan: Government survey: one third of women suffer sexual harassment

A Government survey indicates that nearly a third of Japanese women have been subjected to sexual harassment at the workplace, including inappropriate touching and unwarranted advances.

In addition, over twenty percent of Japanese women reported suffering from pregnancy discrimination.
