5th March 2019
You can make a big difference for women in workplaces around the world, by:
Going to Westminster on Tuesday 5th March to lobby your MP in Parliament as part of our exciting day of action, OR
heading down to your MP’s constituency office for a meeting, in the run-up to International Women’s Day (Friday 8th March)
At the meeting you’ll ask your MP to publicly pledge to end workplace harassment in 2019. This commitment by MPs will put pressure on the government to take action and call #TimesUp on workplace harassment.

In the UK, we are asking the government to:
reinstate third-party harassment laws
introduce a duty on employers to prevent harassment
In the UK, more than half of women polled by the TUC had experienced some form of sexual harassment in the workplace. The Fawcett Society’s Sex Discrimination Law Review found that women in the UK who work in retail, hospitality, and many other sectors that deal with customers and clients on a daily basis currently have little protection from their employer when facing harassment from third parties. That’s why we are campaigning to demand that the UK government reinstate third-party harassment laws and introduce a duty on employers to prevent harassment.
