The Harvey Weinstein scandal and those that followed brought dozens of victims out of the shadows, many in the largely New York-centered media industry.
But they are a drop in the ocean of sexual harassment victims in New York State, who number in the millions, judging from our exclusive NY1/Baruch College poll.
Asked if they've ever experienced sexual harassment, 25 percent statewide said yes, 73 percent said no, with two percent unsure.
As one might expect, far more women — about one in three — reported harassment, compared to 14 percent of men, or about one in seven. And maybe counterintuitively, generally the more highly educated and the wealthier, the more harassment — 51 percent of those with a post-graduate education said they'd been harassed, with 48 percent of those having a household income of more than $100,000. The count is 42 percent of black women, the highest among racial and ethnic groups.
"It clearly is a problem not just in Hollywood and not just with politicians," Baruch College Pollster Mickey Blum said.
Meanwhile, if the behavior attributed to Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore — who is accused of preying on girls as young as 14 — was shocking, it's not uncommon in New York.
Of those women who reported harassment, more than half said they were harassed when under the age of 16, including a whopping 84 percent of young women who are currently between the age of 18 to 29, and 80 percent of low-income women (those with income under $30,000). The margin of error for this smaller subgroup is +/- 8 percentage points.
"The idea of preying upon people under age 16 is not just a problem in Alabama; it seems to be a problem up here as well," Blum said.
Recent high-profile cases mostly involve men in power abusing subordinates.
While our poll found 55 percent of women harassed were victims of a person in a position of power, such as a boss or a teacher, the problem was seemingly worse in past decades, with three-quarters of women age 65 and over reporting such harassment, compared to 40 percent of those ages 18 to 29.
Our poll also found that, for a certain subset of women, sexual harassment is a regular part of life, with 27 percent of those harassed saying it's happened to them ten or more times.
