New Fund Aimed to End Workplace Sexual Harassment

June 3rd, 2019
harassment

Sexual harassment has been a widespread problem in the workplace for what has seemingly been ages. Unwanted and illegal interactions at work have been increasingly worrisome for generations. Studies have shown that eight out of 10 women experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. Women who suffered through such an experience had reported mental and physical problems, career progression issues, lower wages, and other negative and dire consequences.  Reporting sexual harassment and its negative effects discourages women from pursuing higher wages and positions.

The Collaborative Fund for Women’s Safety and Dignity has been launched in hopes to end sexual harassment in the workplace. It has been reported that 11 U.S. funders have committed $20 million to help combat this serious and repercussive problem. The #MeToo movement has raised an awareness to workplace harassment and discrimination to a global level.

Racial Justice

Insight into the workplace environment has been brought to the forefront, and it is not only women who are affected by sexual harassment. Workplace harassment and discrimination has become a systemic issue for all people. The Fund is committed to not only equal workplace rights for all genders, but also racial justice as well. It is generally unknown that African American women have been subjected to more sexual harassment and violence than others; in fact, the first workplace sexual harassment lawsuits in the United States have been filed by African American women. Discrimination and sexual harassment have intertwining qualities that affect women regardless of their race, age, or class.

The Fund looks for and supports solutions that have come from the people who experienced them. The Fund will begin grantmaking this year and will look to reward those in the community who are looking to make a difference and help end sexual harassment and violence toward women. This includes movement leaders, networks, and institutions who fight for equal rights for women across the globe.
