Stop gendered violence at work

Women's rights at work report

23 Nov 2017
Description

Throughout 2016 the Victorian Trades Hall Council (VTHC) has embarked on consultation with Victorian working women regarding their experience of work. This conversation became known as WRAW (Women’s Rights At Work) chat. A common theme arising was the extent to which cultures of sexism and gender inequality were impacting on women’s safety and health at work. We came to understand that in many instances the treatment the women were experiencing was a form of violence and that employers, WorkSafe and in some instances unions, did not see the issue in this way. This report is a resource designed to raise awareness of this issue and to promote action to eliminate the violence Victorian women are experiencing at work.
