ENOUGH IS ENOUGH’ Sexual harassment against women in the FIFO mining industry

Sexual harassment and sexual violence in the workplace are pervasive in many industries but particularly in male dominated industries. Power imbalances between men and women often perpetuate manifestations of gender inequality, such as strongly held beliefs about gender roles, or attitudes and behaviours towards people based on their gender. This can create a culture and social conditions that enable violence and harassment towards women. The Community Development and Justice Standing Committee inquired into and reported on the sexual harassment against women in the FIFO mining industry.
