For too long, the international aid sector has contended with the open secret of widespread sexual exploitation and abuse (SEAH) from within our ranks.
VOICE is not afraid to say it: any institution that has men in positions of power working on behalf of women and girls is potentially negligent. We are not talking about a few bad apples, in all international NGOs and UN agencies, predatory men continue o hide behind a curtain of altruism.
There is a better way to handle this. Organisations must implement real, feminist, policy changes that protect the women and children they claim to serve.
Join VOICE for a conversation on sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) and its impact on international NGOs and UN agencies.
GWI Research Scientist Alina Potts will be joining the panel to discuss our Empowered Aid research.
