WASHINGTON, DC—A new survey by Breitbart News found that more than one-third of women have witnessed at least one incident of sexism at the hands of their male counterparts at a Trump press conference.
The survey, conducted by a panel of Breitbart News journalists, revealed that women who have witnessed a sexist outburst at a press conference are most likely to be black, Hispanic, and Native American.
A majority of white women, Asian women, and women of color who have experienced sexism at a presidential press conference were also found to have witnessed the outburst.
The findings of the survey are in stark contrast to a recent report by the American Association of University Women, which found that white women are twice as likely to experience sexism as white men.
According to the AUSAW, women of all ethnicities are more likely than white women to report experiencing sexism at press conferences, but the disparity is most pronounced among Asian Americans, Native Americans, and people of color.
The report cited the fact that while Asian Americans and Native Americans experience more sexism at public events, they also experience more incidents of harassment and mistreatment at the press conferences of their White House counterparts.
The AUSA W report also highlighted the fact, however, that the percentage of white men who reported witnessing sexism at an event rose from 8.9% in 2012 to 15.4% in 2016.
In a related report, the ANAW found that only 5.6% of women in the U.S. have experienced gender-based harassment at a public event.
According the AFAW, there are currently more than 2.7 million women working in the media, with a staggering 40% of all female journalists and editors reporting harassment or abuse at some point during their work.
The Breitbart News survey was conducted between February 18 and February 23, with 1,058 women of various genders and ages participating.
