New research from the Fawcett Society has found that one year on from the outpouring of #MeToo stories, there has been a significant shift in attitudes to sexual harassment.
According to the research released on 2 October by the Fawcett Society, the majority of people (53%) say that since #MeToo what is seen as acceptable has changed.
The report recommends that the Government:
- Reintroduces “third party harassment” laws, so that employers have a duty to protect women from clients, contractors, or patients who harass;
- Ensures that forthcoming Relationships and Sex Education guidance refers to gender-based violence like sexual harassment;
- Delivers on a recent commitment to review hate crime legislation and make misogyny a hate crime;
- Introduce a new duty on large employers to prevent discrimination and harassment in their workplaces.
