University body creates sexual harassment watchdog post

For the first time, the Council for Higher Education in Israel appointed someone to be responsible for preventing sexual harassment, council representatives told the Knesset Committee for the Advancement of the Status of Women, writes Lahav Harkov for The Jerusalem Post.

Sigal Mordoch, an assistant to the deputy head of the Council for Higher Education, will be responsible for dealing with issues relating to sexual harassment.

The committee recently held its third annual meeting on sexual harassment in institutions of higher education, following up on reports from 106 out of 152 colleges and universities to the panel, which received a total of 146 official complaints, and heard 72 rumours and unofficial complaints, in the last year.
