Violence against women in the work place takes place in all countries throughout the world and takes many forms, including sexual harassment and bullying. It has serious consequences for those who are directly affected and can also have wider reaching effects on their ability to earn a livelihood, support their family, and achieve economic empowerment. Women and girls working in the informal economy are particularly at risk from exploitation and abuse.
