Let's protect women at work!

More than 120 women at garment factories in Lesotho say they were sexually abused by their supervisors. Some say they were raped at their factory premises.

These women are not alone. 80% of garment workers surveyed in Bangladesh have experienced or witnessed sexual violence and harassment at work. So have millions of women worldwide.

But, in weeks -- we can help bring to life a groundbreaking treaty that could protect women everywhere from workplace violence!

6 countries have ratified it, but we need more to bring it into law worldwide. So, let’s take our call directly to champion countries, such as Spain, Argentina and Ecuador, ahead of a major global summit on women’s rights, and help ring the alarm across the world. Sign now!
