Report: The Bullying and Harassment of House of Commons Staff

Dame Laura Cox, who chaired The Fawcett Society’s Sex Discrimination Law Review earlier this year, has published a report on bullying and sexual harassment among House of Commons staff. It describes how 'bullying, harassment and sexual harassment have been able to thrive and have long been tolerated and concealed' in 'a culture, cascading from the top down, of deference, subservience, acquiescence and silence.' This comprehensive, damning report reveals that the culture of Westminster needs nothing short of transformational change.
