RW says 43% of women - just 4% of men - have been harassed on their runs
Agree, surprised it's not near 100% for both genders.

Three thoughts:

1. Most people don't run as much as the letsrun crowd, so they have fewer opportunities to get harassed.

2. Skinnier people with runner-looking bodies are probably more likely to get harassed than your typical American-sized individual.

3. Some men probably won't want to admit to being harassed or have some weird definition of the term (or haven't thought about what the definition really is).

Anyhow, runners don't have it anywhere nearly as bad as cyclists. Last week a woman threw her car door open at me just because I stopped at a red light (in the bike lane!), a passing Lyft driver apologized to me like three times for her behavior and he had nothing to do with it.
