Aaron Halegua Examines Anti-Harassment Laws in China

Aaron Halegua (’09), Research Fellow at New York University Law School, US-Asia Law Institute, was quoted in Sixth Tone discussing the ineffectiveness of Chinese laws in stopping sexual harassment, as women in China turn to social media to block harassers and toxic workplaces in the face of growing restrictions on feminist discourse (“On China’s Job Platforms, a Furious Struggle Over Sexual Harassment,” Oct. 18). “Although the law instructs employers to take measures to prevent and stop sexual harassment, it does not state that employers bear any legal liability for failing to do so.”
