“Strategies that employers need to put in place include having a procedure or a pol-icy to deal with harassment.
“Our management is very aware of women’s rights and gender issues. The best way to protect women from har-assment at their workplace is a good education, and that’s what we provide to our employees,” Ngoun said.
In 2009, the Ministry of Women’s Affairs found one in 10 garment workers had experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. That number rose to four in five for beer promotion workers.
Eighty per cent of beer promotion workers had experienced unwanted sexual touching, and 38 per cent had been coerced into performing a sexual act in the workplace.
A recent report from the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport, designed by the NGO FHI 360 and UNICEF, recommends the government focus on girls’ education.
According to UN figures from late 2011, between 30 and 40 per cent of women in the Asia-Pacific region experience unwanted sexual advances, physical contact, verbal suggestions or other forms of sexual harassment at their workplace.Read Phnom Penh Post
