UN Women creates new role to address sexual harassment and discrimination

UN Women has stepped up its efforts to help end women’s experiences of sexual harassment, by appointing Purna Sen to the newly created role of Executive Coordinator and Spokesperson on Addressing Sexual Harassment and Other Forms of Discrimination.
In response to women’s experiences of sexual harassment, Sen will focus on ensuring actions are being taken in both government administrations and the private sector. This will be achieved in two parts; firstly, by asking women to share their experiences of sexual harassment and assault and secondly, ensuring practices, policies, and laws are enforced to deal with these harassments.
