But employers and workers increasingly find a way to address it short of a lawsuit.

"Herman Cain scandal" You mean the allegations? What exactly is the scandal? There is none. Biased liberal reporting at it's worst.

I knew the media was going to do this. To deflect attention from the sexual assault stories of two caucasian men at two different universities (Penn State, Syracuse), the media chooses to focus on sexual harassment in the workplace. They rush to conveniently point to Herman Cain, an African American man running for president that was recently accused of harassment. There is no headlining story in this paper about the two stories of abuse of little boys by grown men. This is totally despicable. They did the same kind of hiding the story with the long time epidemic of Catholic priests abusing young boys. This hiding of stories only makes these issues perpetuate and worsen. How do these people live with themselves and go to sleep at night.

I wonder why this paper wants to concentrate on sexual harassment and conveniently point to Herman Cain, but doesn't have a headlining story about the two sexual abuse cases against scores of young boys by two coaches at two different major universities.

Did the Strib focus so much on sexual harassment when Clinton was accused of repeated offenses?

The constant drum beat of female victimhood rolls on. We need swat teams, committees overseeing bad behavior. Traffic cameras on the highway, on the street, in your office recording every move and every whisper. Save us big government!

Sexual harassment is a problem, but so is yellow journalism that perpetuates falsehoods (i.e., lies) that you speak of with Herman Cain. The man is innocent despite the dredging of the likes of the media and the red star tribune. How about reporting the news in an unbiased fashion, beginning with the Clinton sexual harassment that @nemotodes rightly points out?

Several forget that there was a small little matter of an impeachment trial of Clinton and certainly no lack of news anywhere for 8 years of Clinton's actual and possible trangressions. Let's not be ridiculous by pretending that it wasn't reported ad nauseum back then. Herman Cain has been abandoned by his own party already and it soon won't matter what he did to the news media or public.

Ignoring all these whiners about Cain, this was a very good artical. Young women should feel thankful that the workplace has changed so much. The difference between when I started 30 years ago and now is incredible! Don't complain the next time you have to sit down and watch an anti-harrassment video. It worked!

Anti-harassment legislation is nothing more than an end-around, back-door assault on the first amendment. A way to control what others are allowed to say while in your presence.

"there was a small little matter of an impeachment trial of Clinton" You need a history lesson. He was impeached for lying under oath.
