René Cassin is working with the Alliance of Jewish Women and their Organisations to take a stand against sexual harassment and gender-based violence in the workplace.
Gender-based violence remains one of the most tolerated violations of workers’ human rights. According to statistics, 35% of women – 818 million women globally – over the age of 15 have experienced sexual or physical violence at home, in their communities or in the workplace.
C190 is the “Violence and Harassment” Convention, adopted on 21 June 2019 by the International Labour Conference. It establishes the right of everyone to a world of work free from violence and harassment, including gender-based violence and harassment. It is the first international law to do so. C190 is supplemented by Recommendation 206 (R206), which gives further, more detailed guidance on how the Convention should be implemented at national level.
