May 1st CGO Event: WORKING WITH SHARKS: A Pakistani Woman's Story of Countering Sexual Harassment in the United Nations
Dr Fouzia Saeed will talk about her recently published book where she has described a case of sexual harassment she filed against a senior UN official in Pakistan. The case became a landmark for a national struggle in Pakistan that sparked off in 2001 and culminated in the passage of legislation against sexual harassment in 2010. The legislation focuses on transforming the organizational culture in all institutions. It was the first comprehensive legislation on sexual harassment in South Asia. The Prime Minister of Pakistan declared the day she filed the case, 22nd of December, as the National Working Women's Day.
Working with Sharks inspires working women in any part of the world to find their voice and stand up to sexual harassment. (www.WorkingWithSharks.com

The study also showed that women often take on this role over time without an explicit discussion with their partners, and still contribute to a majority of home and childcare duties.
