Lebanese Labor Law is not criminalizing sexual harassment at the work place yet.
Many activists and organisations have tried to change the law, legislators and responsibles didn’t take any action yet.
The consequences of Sexual Harassment are huge: not only psychological, but also economical and financial.
Lebanese women working and that are subject to sexual harassment will have to quit their work, and therefore lose their job…..
Dear Member of Parliaments who have reconducted for themselves, please do the job you are paid for, WOMEN in Lebanon Need Protection!
