2. Various shots, delegates
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Guy Ryder, Director-General, ILO:
“We are confronted today with evidence of a submerged iceberg of misconduct which disfigures and contaminates the world of work and renders it all too frequently a particularly hostile and intimidating environment to women.”
4. Cutaway, delegates
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Guy Ryder, Director-General, ILO:
“We can all join in making sure that we produce results which really make a difference, and open the way to guarantees of workplaces entirely free of violence and harassment – and that means by the way that the scope of our work must encompass all forms of violence and harassment. Simply put, our answer to the ever more vocal call for this action has to be “Us Too”.”
6. Cutaway, delegates
7. SOUNDBITE (English) Guy Ryder, Director-General, ILO:
“While the ILO has a considerable record of commitment and achievement in the cause of gender equality the fact remains that we remain far from the goals that we have set ourselves and that progress towards those goals remains slow, uneven, and uncertain. So it seems that just carrying on doing the same things, or even doing a bit more of them is unlikely to overcome the sometimes hidden structural obstacles that need to be cleared from the path of equality.”
