Not a bit of it. A woman has the right to go to work and to be allowed to do her job without a bunch of men constantly trying to seduce her and making unkind remarks when she rebuffs them. I have worked in settings that were traditionally all male, like in a military mess hall, when women were first brought in in the same capacity as the men. No female soldier, especially a married one, wants half the shift paying more attention to her, with the goal of getting her to bed with them, than they pay to getting their products on the serving line. Without constant supervision of the male personnel, that is exactly what has happened in far too many cases. Too many men think that a woman's mere presence implies her sexual availability to them.

It will probably take several generations before men in general learn to accept that women are there for the same reason for which the men allegegly are, which is to earn a decent living doing an honest day's work.
A lot of men are still having trouble learning that their externally-stowed danglies do not make them automaticly more qualified for jkust about any of the work they have traditionally done in an all-male setting.
In a nutshell, until men like you get over yourselves, there will still be a need for sexual harrassment laws.
