This charity was set up by two professional women: Yasmin Choudhury and Attika Choudhary. Passionate advocates speaking up on the complexity of tackling harassment in the workplace or in personal lives, which then might impact one's career ambitions.
Currently little to non-existent support exists for professional women and men seeking to protect their income and employment in the midsts of or after suffering domestic abuse or sexual attacks and harrassment. Post abuse - even less support is available due to Govt funding cuts.
No man or woman should ever have to suffer the double whammy of suffering and/or reporting abuse and harrassment, which later impacts their income streams, livelihoods or professional and business careers.
In the UK, one in four women will experince assualt in her lifetime. Minority groups or those with multiple disadvantages are often not reaching their potential due to impact of abuse, which leads to a cycle of complex hardships and poverty.
Please follow us on social media as we set up and launch . We are due to be formalised into a charity.
