Ipsos conducted a survey across 27 countries in 2020 to uncover if women feel they are treated equally in the workplace. They found that nearly half (46%) of people around the world think it is acceptable to ask a coworker on a date. Four in ten Americans (41% vs. 26% among all people globally) say that rejecting a colleague who wants a date or a romantic relationship is more likely to damage a woman’s career than a man’s. Meanwhile, across all countries, 22% believe it is acceptable to tell jokes or stories of a sexual nature at work, including 28% of men and 16% of women. Americans are least permissive of this behavior (along with Mexicans), with just 10% saying this is acceptable.
