International Women’s day

Why it’s so important in the battle for equality.

  • Workplace bullying: In a recent ABC report, it was found that women are less likely to be the alleged perpetrator of bullying (20.7%) as compared to men (49.4%). However, a slightly higher percentage of men submitted a complaint to the Workplace Relations Commission (57.5%) as compared to women (42.5%). International literature might help to explain this finding. According to international study findings, men and women adopt distinct coping strategies when dealing with bullying; that is, women use more avoidance strategies (e.g., sick leave, request for transfer, ignoring), whereas men tend to use more active coping strategies (e.g., confront the perpetrator).
