The Society of Authors and The Bookseller have joined forces to call for co-operation throughout the publishing to tackle sexual harassment.

An industry-wide survey conducted by The Bookseller found that more than half of the 381 respondents had experienced harassment: 54% of women and 34% of men. The reported harassment was spread throughout the industry: booksellers, publishers, agents, scouts, authors, events organisers and freelances.
