It's difficult to comprehend how the very offices that draft policies on gender-based persecution, women's rights, sexual and gender-based violence and harassment might also employ staff members who mistreat women, men, gay, lesbian, and transgendered individuals on the basis of their gender and/or sexual orientation. But, it's a reality many of us live on a daily basis. What's worse is that the very system in which we all work sometimes even contributes to gender-based distinctions and hierarchies.
Here, we provide you with the space to share your experience with gender-based violence and harassment and to describe in just a few words how you envision the aid-working world should be. We want to hear from all aid workers - women, men, gay, lesbian, and transgendered individuals alike!
