#MeToo: Proving sexual harassment

THE #MeToo movement started out in the United States as a way for survivors of sexual harassment and assault to feel that they are not alone; it has evolved into a global social movement against all forms of sexual abuse.

In 1999 in Malaysia, the Human Resources Ministry sought to address sexual harassment in the workplace by introducing the Code of Practice on the Prevention and Eradication of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace, which provides guidelines to employers to establish mechanisms to prevent and eradicate sexual harassment in the workplace. In 2012, the Employ-ment Act 1955 was amended to recognise sexual harassment at the workplace.
