With the horrible, mounting number of victims of sexual harassment coming forward in the entertainment industry and in politics, it's essential to take a step back and think about how the outdoor industry can improve.

And it's not just the extreme of harassment we need to look at, but gender equality as a whole. Treating both men and women with respect and giving equal training and opportunities to both sexes is essential for a healthy, thriving workplace.

Tomorrow, Camber Outdoors is conducting a webinar on how these issues are impacting our industry and what we can do about it.

We want to know: Do you think men and women are treated equally in the outdoor industry? Vote now. Leave us a comment on Facebook to tell us what you think.
