Today Welsh Women’s Aid has published data that shows four out of five women in Wales have experienced sexual harassment at work.
In response to this, Welsh Women’s Aid is launching the #NoGreyArea campaign which calls out toxic workplace environments where sexual harassment can flourish. Please watch our video. Like. Comment. Share.
If you are in immediate danger, ring 999 immediately. Remember the Silent Solution System – if you cannot speak when the operator answers, press 55 to make the call-handler aware you are in danger and can’t speak.
We know that lockdown across Wales will be a worry for many survivors. We want to reassure survivors and their loved ones that support is, and will continue to be, available.
We have put together a range of resources that may help survivors and people concerned for them, during these difficult times.
It is estimated that around 3 million women across the UK experience rape, domestic violence, forced marriage, stalking, sexual exploitation, trafficking and other forms of violence every year. This is the equivalent to the population of Wales.
Report of the Secretary General, 2006
We were joined by @Saferwales discussing their work around sexual exploitation. They talked about the importance of volunteers in a community response. There was an emphasis on the importance of prevention, which has led to a project with young girls at risk of exploitation.
