Abstract

La discriminación por embarazo y el acoso y hostigamiento sexual son dos formas de violencia en contra de la mujer en el ámbito laboral. Este artículo examina la prevalencia y los factores asociados a estas dos formas de violencia en México a partir de los datos de la Endireh 2006. En los 12 últimos meses, el 11.28% de las mujeres mexicanas empleadas sufrió discriminación por embarazo, y el 2.83% hostigamiento/acoso sexual. El Estado mexicano ha de continuar trabajando para promover la igualdad entre hombres y mujeres y proteger a las mujeres de cualquier forma de violencia, especialmente al presentar mujeres empleadas en instancias gubernamentales un mayor riesgo de discriminación por embarazo, acoso y hostigamiento sexual. Pregnancy-based discrimination and sexual harassment are two forms of violence against women at the workplace. This paper examines the prevalence of and factors associaciated to sexual harassment and pregnancy-based discrimination among Mexican women by using data from the National Survey on Household Relationship Dynamics 2006. During the year previous to the survey, 11.28% of employed women experienced pregnancy-based discrimination, and 2.83% of them suffered sexual harassment. Further actions from the Mexican state are needed in order to promote gender equality and protect women from all forms of violence, especially since women working at governmental offices are more likely to suffer sexual harassment and pregnancy-based discrimination.
