Georgetown University’s Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor and the Solidarity Center invite you to a virtual conversation and book launch.
In June 2019, the International Labor Organization adopted a ground-breaking global treaty on eliminating violence and harassment in the world of work, including gender-based harassment. This historic treaty was the result of a global grassroots, cross-movement campaign to end gender-based workplace violence led by women trade unionists and their allies. In their newly published book, Stopping Gender-Based Violence and Harassment at Work: The Campaign for an ILO Convention, Jane Pillinger, Robin Runge and Chidi King document the critical role of women and unions in achieving this landmark achievement.
Join us on April 26 to hear from the authors who were directly involved in the campaign and key women union leaders of the global movement to end gender-based violence and harassment in the world of work. Learn more about this campaign and the impact of International Labour Convention 190 to prevent and address gender-based violence and harassment in the world of work.
