Sexual Harassments

Review finds 1 in 3 staff in Australian federal parliament experience sexual harassment

Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins carried out the review, which was released in parliament today.

The review found more than half of all people in Commonwealth parliamentary workplaces experienced at least one incident of bullying, sexual harassment or actual or attempted sexual assault.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison released the report, thanking those who contributed to the review including Higgins.

"Her voice has spoken for many, as this report shows," he said.
