More Than Half the Women in Advertising Have Experienced Sexual Harassment, Reports Ad Age

by | Aug 16, 2016

More than half of women in advertising have experienced sexual harassment at least once, according to a statistic from a 4A’s study that follows on the heels of Saatchi & Saatchi Chairman Kevin Roberts‘ resignation due to controversial comments about gender diversity, reports Ad Age.

The Ad Age article, in part, added:

“The survey looks at emailed responses from 375 female ad professionals, 43% in middle management and 33% in senior management. Men also responded to the survey (180 of them), but for this phase, the association only looked at the women’s answers, said 4A’s President-CEO Nancy Hill.

“Ms. Hill said she was not surprised by the results, but she knows some people will be. “For me, personally, what I wanted to do was make it irrefutable because I think too many people don’t think it’s as pervasive as it is,” she said. “Because of the position I am in, people tell me their stories all their time.”

“One finding that Ms. Hill said may shock people is the fact that one in three women said they have not received desired assignments or promotions at least a few times because of discrimination and 42% said they have not been included in decision-making because of discrimination.”

The 4A’s was founded as a national trade association to represent U.S. advertising agencies.
