The number of charges alleging sexual harrassment in the United States has declined steadily from 16,000 in 2000 to less than 13,000 today.  Approximately 15% of sexual harassment clains are filed by men.  The Equal Employment Oppurtunity Commission attributes the improvement to better supervisor training and concerted management action to address sexual harassment issues before they reach litigation
