Female executive at Yahoo sued for alleged sexual harassment

Yet another technology executive is being accused of sexual harassment.

But these allegations are a little different from the recent tales of inappropriate behavior among male founders and high-tech execs. Last week, Yahoo software engineer Nan Shi filed a lawsuit that named Maria Zhang, a female engineering executive at the company, alleging sexual harassment.

The suit claims that Zhang coerced Shi to have "oral and digital sex," warning "she could take away everything from her including her job, stocks and future if she did not do what she wanted."
