Abstract


  • This report examines the role of workplaces, and men in workplaces in particular, in preventing

    men’s violence against women.

    The report begins by noting that men’s violence against women is a widespread social problem

    which requires urgent action. It highlights the need for preventative measures oriented to

    changing the social and structural conditions at the root of this violence, including through

    settings such as workplaces.

    Men’s violence against women is a workplace issue. As well as being a blunt infringement of

    women’s rights, this violence imposes very substantial health and economic costs on workplaces

    and organisations.
