A ‘culture of retribution’, sex discrimination, harassment and bullying – the undue costs of women working in Ambulance services in Australia.

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

Bullying, harassment and sexism shouldn’t be part of a woman’s work day but the Victorian Human Rights Commission’s investigation into ambulance services in Victoria has uncovered that women paramedics experience just that.

They have revealed compelling evidence that women paramedics have been confronting incidences of overt gender and sex based discrimination and harassment in the industry and that little is being done about it.
