Poll: Men much less likely to view sexual harassment as a serious workplace issue than women

Pollster Daniel Cox said on Thursday that women are more likely than men to say sexual harassment in the workplace "is a serious issue."

"Young women and women, in general, are much more likely to say sexual harassment is a serious issue in the workplace, and men are much less likely to agree that's a problem," Cox, director of polling research at PRRI, told The Hill's Bob Cusack on "What America's Thinking." 

"I think the dynamics in American culture have shifted dramatically over a really short period of time on this issue," he said, identifying "a really significant gender divide" in the polling on how women and men perceive the issue.

Numerous women from Hollywood to Capitol Hill last year came forward to publicly accuse a slew of powerful men of sexual misconduct in the workplace. 

The public allegations led to to the emergence of the "Me Too" and "Time's Up" movements, which advocate for gender equality inside and outside of the workplace.
