An organization supporting victims of workplace sexual harassment says they’re in danger of losing vital funding as public attention shifts away from the #MeToo movement.
“This isn’t something that’s gone away,” said Kate Cornell, an advisor with Aftermetoo, an organization offering survivors of workplace sexual harassment legal resources via a digital platform.
“Researchers describe repeated workplace sexual harassment as a major scarring event, equivalent to being incarcerated or sustaining a major injury.”
Despite the fact that workplace sexual harassment continues to be a serious, if under-reported, problem in Canada, Cornell said funding for the program is scheduled to end in March of next year.
