Can mildew get to a poster that's in a frame?

I want to hang a framed poster in our bathroom but it doesn't ventilate very well. My girlfriend is concerned that mildew will ruin the poster inside the frame. Is this something that can happen? I realize a certain amount might but since it's in the frame I didn't think it would affect that badly.

If its a poster that you value in any way I wouldnt put it in a bathroom. Mildew would be less my concern and the humidity from showering in there will definitely in time affect the print.
