Emma Watson launches helpline for those being harassed at work

Harry Potter star Emma Watson has launched a legal advice line for those experiencing sexual harassment at work.

The new helpline aims to plug a gap in the availability of legal advice so women can access the help they need to hold their employer and harasser to account.

The Guardian reports that Watson helped to kickstart the advice line, which is backed by Time’s Up UK’s justice and equality fund and managed by Rosa, the UK Fund for Women and Girls, with advice provided by the charity Rights of Women.

Watson said: “It finally feels like people are realising the scale of the problem, and I’m certainly hopeful that with global standards such as the recent International Labour Organization treaty on harassment at work we’ll start to see a new climate of prevention and accountability on this issue domestically.”

The new advice line number is 020 7490 0152.
