Welcome recognition of harassment, but employers should be involved

The government introduced a new anti-harassment law this month! We applaud the new remedies for victims, but hope to see employers more involved in workplace sexual harassment. Read our views here.

Budget: New directions welcome, but questions remain

We were heartened by the government's recognition of income inequality and lack of social mobility in Budget 2014. We continue to have questions about how these issues will be addressed. Click here to read our comments.

Sex crimes are against people, not 'purity'

Some see rape as a crime against "purity" of a victim, rather than recognising it as an attack on their bodily autonomy. We have to view sexual crimes as violations of people, not "purity". Read our op-ed in the Straits Times here.
