From indecent remarks to sexual assault, it is estimated that 50% of women have been subject to sexual harassment at some point in their working lives.

While the Sex Discrimination Act provides the legal right not to be sexually harassed at work, many women (and men) are still experiencing it and many incidents are going unreported.

But one website is helping to change that. Whisper is an anonymous secret-sharing social media network that allows users to post thoughts, feelings or events online, without compromising their identity.
