The events of 2020 have turned workplaces upside down. Under the highly challenging circumstances of the Covid-19 crisis, many employees are struggling to do their jobs.

Sexual harassment is harassment based on the victim’s sex. It includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and any other type of gender-based harassment including verbal, physical and psychological.
#MeToo has been effective in focusing the eyes of the world on the problem of sexual harassment at work. But the voices of LGBT people haven’t been heard clearly enough in discussions around this issue. We wanted to change this and foreground LGBT people’s voices and experiences in the ongoing debate and search for solutions. We therefore conducted the first survey of its kind on this issue.
Stop Street Harassment (SSH) commissioned this study. SSH is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization
dedicated to documenting and ending gender-based street harassment worldwide through public
education and community mobilization. Our work includes the annual International Anti-Street
Harassment Week, the National Street Harassment Hotline, a blog correspondents program, and website
resources. Visit: www.stopstreetharassment.org.
