In a new survey, 94% of Hollywood women — "producers, actors, writers, directors, editors and others" — say they've been the victims of sexual assault or harassment during their careers, reports USA TODAY.

By the numbers: "Nearly all of the women who responded to the survey (94%) say they have experienced some form of harassment or assault, often by an older individual in a position of power over the accuser... Worse, more than one-fifth of respondents (21%) say they have been forced to do something sexual at least once."
