STOP gender-based violence at work
The ILO Governing Body, at its meeting in Geneva, Switzerland on 12 November 2015, agreed to discuss a new international standard on gender-based violence at work. It will be included in the agenda of the 2018 International Labour Conference.

This work is the result of proposals and lobbying led since 2014 by the Workers' group in coordination with the ITUC and Global Union Federations including PSI.

The road is still long; however, we have marked a first milestone! Long live the fight for women’s rights! This is a good first step in our actions taking place on 25 November 2015!
