Sexual Harassment Bill Is Very Timely – Media Women Forum

Media Women ForumThe Media Women Forum has come out to describe the Sexual Harassment Bill recently passed by the Senate as a welcome development.

The forum recently revealed that the bill would prevent sexual harassment and exploitation of female students by lecturers in Nigerian universities.

According to Mrs. Toro Ladipo, a member of the forum, even if she would have loved to see the bill expanded to accommodate other levels of education and other places where women experience sexual harassment, it is a timely decision that should be commended.

She added that the National Assembly should focus on other gender-related bills, especially the Gender and Equal Opportunity and Anti-rape bills.

Her words, “While we would have loved to see the bill expanded to accommodate other levels of education and other places where women experience sexual harassment, we, however, see it as timely and in line with agitation to ending sexual harassment of girls and women in general”.

“We use this opportunity to call on the National Assembly to expedite action on other gender-related bills, especially the Gender and Equal Opportunity and Anti-rape bills”.
