AS the government launches an inquiry into sexual harassment in the workplace, reported in TCW yesterday, Minister for Women Victoria Atkins has revealed her personal harassment ordeal.
‘I had an individual email about my footwear,’ she said. ‘It was in a way that showed a great interest in my footwear. And that was something that made me feel uncomfortable.’
Ms Atkins refers to women who have been harassed as ‘survivors’. What good fortune for us that she made it through this trauma.
Is there any limit to what can be described as sexual harassment? Discuss!
