Sexual Harassment at the Workplace
The 2018 #MeToo global movement has given courage to women and men to speak out and expose the systemic nature of sexism and male entitlement. Women are no longer willing to be silenced when they are harassed and abused.
A sexual harassment law would provide a clear definition of prohibitive conduct and outline the seriousness of the violation. A law could also mandate that all companies have in place proper mechanisms to protect employees and deal with harassment.
