I loathe to say this, but I’m beginning to think that Mike Pence has a point. You put men and women together without their spousal chaperones, add a dash of alcohol, and voila! Stuff happens.

The “Us Too” report released by the International Bar Association (click here for my take on the general findings) seems to confirm Pence’s point, and it’s a downer. In a nutshell: If you’re a female lawyer, your chances of getting sexually harassed are way better than getting run over by a Citibike. Then, if you put the sexes in a social situation outside the office, a few obnoxious remarks could morph into something worse.
