The Cox Report - Open Letter

In an open letter, Centre for Women’s Justice and its clients have called on the administration of the House of Commons to implement Dame Laura Cox’s proposed reforms in full and make Westminster a safe place of work for women. In a letter addressed to the House of Commons Commission last Wednesday, Centre for Women’s Justice insisted that its clients demand ‘swift and proactive’ change, to include the creation of a 'truly independent mechanism' to hear all formal complaints by House staff of bullying, harassment and sexual assault committed against them by Members. The Centre also demanded that historic complaints must be re-opened to ensure if past victims are to be heard, and lessons learned.
