on

This morning I launched a Web-Based system for reporting sexual harassment at Institutions of Higher Learning, a project by researchers from the Makerere University School of Women and Gender Studies (SWGS) and Kyambogo University. The system will strengthen our efforts to fight Sexual Harassment at Makerere and other universities and will be scaled up to other government and private organizations. I congratulate the Kicking Sexual Harassment out of Higher Education Institutions (KISH) team led by Professor Grace Bantebya-Kyomuhendo on this great innovation.
