Google Employees Plan Global Walkout To Protest Company's Treatment Of Women

Recommended Posts




Hundreds of Google employees worldwide are expected to walk off the job to protest the company's treatment of women and handling of sexual assault cases.


Organizers say they expect more than a thousand employees will walk out of Google offices worldwide at 11:10 a.m. local time on Thursday. Hundreds of employees have already walked out in Singapore.


Organizers are calling for an end to forced arbitration, a commitment from the company to end pay and opportunity inequity, a publicly disclosed sexual harassment transparency report and a safe and anonymous process for reporting sexual misconduct at Google.


The employee protest comes a week after The New York Times published an extensive report on sexual harassment at the company. Andy Rubin, the creator the Android software operating system, was accused by a female colleague of coercing her to perform oral sex on him in 2013, the Times reports.
