How do we tackle male violence against women and girls in work and in society?
Trade unions have been campaigning to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls for many years, from the effects of domestic and sexual violence to the scourge of sexual harassment and dealing with online and digital harassment. The ILO Convention 190 on the elimination of violence and harassment in the world of work is a new International Standard which Trade Unions can use to negotiate effective remedies and workplace policies.
To mark International Women’s Day, the ICTU Women’s Committee will hold a lunchtime webinar to examine practical ways Trade Unions can use the convention and we will also hear how Unions are developing policies to support victims of domestic abuse as well as supporting members who have experienced sexual harassment.
