Break the circle: Gender violence is a world problem

Join the campaign

Organize meetings, workshops, events and discuss gender violence and the ways to eradicate it within your community.

UNI Equal Opportunities Department is launching a new chapter of Break the Circle! Campaign, against gender violence.

This time the campaign is focused on a specific aspect of violence at work: sexual harassment.

Both women and men may experience sexual harassment in employment, but women tend to be more vulnerable to it because they often hold lower-paying, lower-authority and lower-status jobs than men.

When someone is sexually harassed in the workplace, it can undermine their sense of personal dignity, prevent them from earning a living, doing their job effectively, reaching their full potential and poison the environment for everyone else.

The aim of this campaign is to discuss and reflect on the elements of sexual harassment, and detect ways to prevent and deal with it in the workplace.

Let’s stop violence at work. Let’s break the circle!
