I listened to half the episode this morning. Sadly, I'm not surprised 60% of the women anonymously surveyed, experienced some form of unwanted sexual advances in the workplace. Startup's latest episode with @lisaechow also touched on this topic.

Thank you @rrhoover for sharing the study link. I haven't had a chance to listen to the cast yet but I looked at the write up. I'm not exactly satisfied with their sample population. Leans very heavy on the family 40+ crowd. Having a repeat study to get good sense of young single women in tech just starting their careers would be valuable as well. Even the stat talking about being discrimination regarding talking about family in a population pool that is primarily mothers is biased (not that it's not valid and important but single women, or women who choose to NOT have children are also discriminated). Interested to see this study repeat for validity and also in other cities. Thanks for sharing.

Former Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers partner Trae Vassallo and former Yahoo exec Michele Madansky sit down with Kara Swisher to talk about "The Elephant in the Valley," their new report on gender bias and harassment in tech. The report examines the different facets of sexism through both data and anecdotes from hundreds of women. Later on: Lauren Goode and Kara Swisher are launching a new podcast!

What is the source for that stat? I'd love to see a full study : )

This is an example of why the population sample needs to be bigger. Not just founders and CEO's with families. Young, single women need support and to be part of the conversation as well. https://medium.com/p/3e5ad1ccb95c
