Gender violence and harassment in the workplace is rampant. In Australia 64% of women experience harassment or violence at work.
Around the world, hundreds of millions of women, experience physical and psychological abuse every year. But as yet there is no international law to eradicate this.
The International Labour Organisation is aiming to create a Convention which would create legal obligations for governments to end gender-based violence and harassment in the workplace.
Michaelia Cash and Kelly O’Dwyer should be supporting this, but instead they are trying to prevent the creation of this new law.
We need to send a message that we won’t tolerate workplace gender violence: Not here, not anywhere.
