Tomorrow our Policy and Research Officer Amy Johnson will present evidence to the Standards, Procedures and Public Appointments Committee who are conducting an inquiry into sexual harassment and inappropriate conduct at the Scottish Parliament.
Sexual harassment, and other forms of violence in the workplace are inextricably linked to sexist attitudes and women’s inequality. To prevent violence, we must challenge the misogynistic attitudes which allow it to continue, alongside making concrete steps to promote women’s economic equality with men.
We recommend that the Scottish Parliament acknowledge that gender inequality is a root cause of sexual harassment; this will send out a clear message that will serve to challenge the societal norms that permit sexual harassment and violence against women to occur.
