This month’s edition of Workers’ Liberty’s bulletin Tubeworker has a front page about organising against sexual harassment at work.

Tubeworker says “Sexual harassment happens when power hierarchies in the workplace mix with the power imbalance between men and women in society. Men often have power over women at work. MPs and celebrities have recently been exposed for using their power and influence to act inappropriately to subordinates.

“In our industry, managers and supervisors are often male. We also work in a male-dominated environment, which gives men a kind of ‘strength in numbers’ and a power to use sexual harassment to make women feel very unwelcome in our workplaces.”
