Promise Background
The harassment, of sexual and non-sexual nature, in work and education environments is a major obstacle to more women seeking education and employment. The Inter Press Service (IPS) reported that "The threat of rape, harassment and the “loss of honor” are thought to play a bigger role in keeping Afghan women at home than religious motivations." (http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/05/afghan-women-harassed-into-unemployment/). In his pre-election manifesto, President Ghani committed to serious and lawful steps towards ending the harassment of women in the workplace.

Indicators to Measure Progress
  • 1. Policies and procedures developed and implemented to eradicate female workplace harassment
  • 2. Independent reports that show a reduction of female harassment in the workplace
