Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Sexual Harassment Rife in Australian Parliament, Report Says” – below is their description.

A landmark report aimed at cleaning up a toxic workplace culture in Australia’s parliament and other government offices found that one in three employees had suffered sexual harassment.

Just over a quarter of those that experienced sexual harassment said a member of parliament was responsible, in the survey of more than 1,700 individuals. Some 37% of staff said they had suffered bullying.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison indicated that his government will likely support the report’s 28 recommendations, which include setting targets for gender balance and diversity across all parliamentary roles. He said the findings were “appalling and disturbing.”
