Sexual misconduct, harassment thrives at United Nations, claim staff

Dozens of current and former employees from 10 countries were interviewed and described pervasive silence in the organization, where accusers were ignored or feared for their jobs if they spoke out.

Fifteen of those interviewed claimed they had experienced or reported sexual harassment within the past five years, ranging from 'verbal harassment to rape.' Guardian reports that the investigations were mishandled internally in various ways, and the accused men were often allowed to remain at their posts while accusers were 'forced out of their jobs or threatened.'
