PETALING JAYA: Women aged 18 to 30 regularly face sexual harassment, with 44% of them saying that they had witnessed their teacher making sexually provocative jokes, according to a recent survey.

While 45% of the respondents claimed that they had not witnessed sexually provocative jokes by a teacher, 11% said they were uncertain or could not recall if they had seen it when they were in school.

The nationwide survey by the Centre for Governance and Political Studies (Cent-GPS) in collaboration with the All-Women’s Action Society (Awam) had asked 1,056 women aged between 18 and 30 if they had experienced sexual harassment in their day-to-day lives.

In a statement on the survey results, Cent-GPS said most of the women reported being sexually-harassed regularly while doing simple daily activities.
