A survey on stalking and sexual harassment is being launched Friday by the Young Business and Professional Women’s Club Taskforce.
The goal is to gather public input to make recommendations on legislative changes to protect men and women who are victims of stalking and/or sexual harassment.
The data will also be used to assist with an educational campaign to be launched later this year.
‘There is very little publicly available information on the subjects of stalking or sexual harassment in the Cayman Islands and the main way in which the taskforce will obtain information from the general public on the issues is through the distribution of a survey,’ said a press release from the group.
The month-long survey will be conducted between 25 August and 25 September.
A report based on the survey findings will be presented to the Government and made available on the Young BPW taskforce website at: www.protectcayman.com.
The taskforce was formed in July of 2005 to investigate, assess and provide recommendations on ways to change existing local laws.
It consists of around 40 men and women from a wide range of professional backgrounds.
Take the survey
Between 25 August and 25 September, all are invited and encouraged to participate in this survey by completing it online at www.protectcayman.com/survey.
Printed surveys will also be available. The survey will be distributed in this Friday’s edition of the Caymanian Compass.
It will also be available at the Women’s Resource Centre, the Cayman Islands Crisis Centre, the RCIP Family Support Unit and the Department of Counselling Services.
Return envelopes are provided with the printed surveys and no postage is required to return the completed surveys to the Taskforce.
The survey is confidential – all responses will remain anonymous and no identifying information is requested.
Distribution of the printed surveys through the Caymanian Compass gives the Taskforce the opportunity to not only reach the people of Grand Cayman, but also those in Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
