Namibia’s Deputy Labour Commissioner, Kyllikki Sihlahla called for the fast elimination of violence and harassment against women in the workplace, as the country joined the rest of the world in celebrating International Women’s Day on Tuesday. Sihlahla said that the challenges women face in the workplace are real and some women suffer from severe depression, which if not addressed on time can result in constructive dismissal, the Economist reports. Namibia became the first African country and the only third International Labour Organization Member State to ratify Convention 190, which is aimed at protecting workers and other persons in the world of work.
