  • Emma Watson launches free workplace sexual harassment helpline

Emma Watson has launched a new helpline to provide women with free legal advice if they have been a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace.  Ms. Watson said it “finally feels like people are realising the scale of the problem.”

This helpline will consist of volunteer female employment lawyers offering free guidance to any woman who calls the helpline.

The helpline has been backed by the Time’s Up UK Justice and Equality Fund and managed by Rosa, a UK-wide charitable fund that supports initiatives to benefit women and girls in the UK. The charity, Rights of Women, a charity that helps women through utilising the law, is responsible for recruiting the lawyers who will provide the legal advice.

The fundraising for the helpline was kick-started by donations from the public and several celebrities such as Watson herself who stated it was “completely staggering” that the free helpline was the only one of its type within England and Wales.
