MP says sex­ual ha­rass­ment rife

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

FOR­MER cul­ture sec­re­tary Maria Miller has re­vealed that she has been sex­u­ally ha­rassed “nu­mer­ous times”.

The Tory chair­woman of the Com­mons Women and Equal­i­ties Select Com­mit­tee, who led calls for Muir­field golf club to al­low women mem­bers in 2013, said ha­rass­ment hap­pens “on a very reg­u­lar ba­sis” in the work­place.

Asked if she had ex­pe­ri­enced such be­hav­iour, Ms Miller told 5 News: “Sex­ual ha­rass­ment, of course, we all have.

“I prob­a­bly speak pretty bluntly to peo­ple and it’s not some­thing I would tol­er­ate.

“But, I think, per­haps, if you haven’t got that level of self-con­fi­dence, then you won’t deal with it.”
