Despite the existence of stringent laws regarding sexual violence in the workplace, it remains a silent epidemic. Sexual harassment in the work place has been cited as leading factor for the high turnover of female employees in most industries. Sexual violence in the workplace comes in form of sexism, sex discrimination, and sexual harassment.  Statistics reveal that about 42 to 90 percent of female employees will experience a form of sexual abuse in their entire working life. With most women occupying the lower organizational cadre compared to men, sexual favors are often used as a way of retaining them in employment and as a ladder to move up the organization cadre. Sexual harassment does not only happen in the work place but it also happen in our domestic setting.
