Panel Testifies Against Sexual Harassment in NJ Politics

About a dozen women got together this week to hold a public meeting, sharing their experiences of sexual harassment in New Jersey politics.

The panel’s first meeting, chaired by democratic Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, lasted over two hours with nine women and one man publicly testifying about their experiences.

Weinberg set up the panel in December, after hearing of instances of sexual harassment, assault and misconduct.

The panel, or the Workgroup on Harassment, Sexual Assault, and Misogyny in New Jersey Politics, revealed they want better sexual misconduct prevention training, misconduct called out in the workplace as the root problem in the culture in New Jersey politics and how they treat women. 

The meeting lasted two hours with two more public meetings to take place.
