LeanIn.org and SurveyMonkey’s new #MentorHer poll reveals Friday that 60% of male managers report feeling “too nervous” about being accused of harassment to interact with women in “common workplace” activities such as mentoring, socializing and one-on-one meetings.

Bullet point -

There will be less women in positions of power.

A new glass ceiling.

I had a male mentor. He was insistent we always met in a place with lots of people around, which was a bit distracting. I'd rather have met in his office where it was quiet. I didn't like that he felt there could ever be a possibility I could threaten him. I did appreciate his mentorship though.

yep, I expect to see it more. sorry sjw's, they dont HAVE to hire anyone if they dont give you the reason why. I wish feminists were their own demographic and the rest of us could "opt out" of their BS with a signature.

My husband decided a few months ago he will not longer interview a woman without someone in the room, and he will never have a female client in his vehicle unless there is someone else with them.

Body cams and cameras in the car. That’s going to be how my kids(5 and 2) will be dating when the time comes.

I haven't had a problem with men being uncomfortable around me. Granted I've worked a long time for this company.
