Humanitarian Workplaces Free from Sexual Violence: The First Steps and a Call to Action

“In just two years of Report the Abuse’s operations, the first data on the issue was published, and the first academic report followed shortly afterwards. The first analysis of how humanitarian organisations are addressing sexual violence against their employees was published. Survivors came forward in droves and conversations about the issue began happening in every corner of the humanitarian world – from the UN Secretary-General’s office to the most remote corner of our field sites.

Change is not easy or quick, but the persistent signs of progress are positive and encouraging. It will take dedication – not just from one person or one organisation – but the entire humanitarian community to address sexual violence within our workplaces. Our work is far from done.”
