UN Women SARO in partnership with Channel Africa, supported the broadcasting of radio series on "Sexual Harassment in the World of Work". The Radio Series provided visibility and dialogue on the radio channels to one of the most hidden forms of violence against women: sexual harassment in the workplace. The five chapters told the story of a woman who goes through this situation and provides key information on women’s rights, how to take action and the existing legal framework. A radio panel discussion was held live on 12 December with participation from UN Women, a lawyer from Webber Wentzel Attorneys and an NGO representative from People Opposing Women Abuse (POWA).
