Emma Watson launches free sexual harassment advice line

:: Peoples Time Online ::

Actress Emma Watson has helped launch a free legal advice phone line for women who have experienced sexual harassment at work.

The Time’s Up UK activist said it was “completely staggering” the new service was the only one of its kind in England and Wales.

The line has been funded by donations from the public, including Watson.

Research from the TUC union found as many as one in two women experienced sexual harassment in the workplace.

Watson said it “finally feels like people are realising the scale of the problem”, and she was “certainly hopeful” of starting to see “a new climate of prevention and accountability” in the UK.
