Danes lack a basic understanding of what constitutes sexism and sexual harassment. According to gender researcher Anette Borchorst, Denmark’s long history of equality among the sexes has left the country in the dark ages when it comes to understanding how women experience sexism in the workplace and in everyday life. Borchost said that multinational companies that come to Denmark are shocked to discover that most Danish companies and institutions do not have any sort of guidelines in place to prevent sexual harassment. A new programme being sponsored by Dansk Kvindesamfund, the Danish women’s society, will give women a chance to talk about their experiences with sexism and sexual harassment. – Berlingske
