KemenPPPA: Afraid of Reputation Loss, Corporations Cover Up Sexual Violence

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA — The Ministry of Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection (KemenPPPA) said that corporations still tend to cover up cases of sexual violence in companies. This tendency occurs because management believes that this incident will tarnish the company’s reputation.

“Currently, when this case occurs, it is considered that this threatens the company’s reputation, so efforts are being made to cover it up so that it appears as if there was no sexual violence,” said Assistant Deputy for Protection of Women’s Rights in the Household and the Vulnerable at the Ministry of PPPA, Eni Widiyanti, in a talk show entitled “Synergy in Implementation of the TPKS Law to Create a Workplace Free of Sexual Violence”, in Jakarta, Thursday (7/12/2023).

For this reason, Eni encourages companies that have cases of sexual violence to acknowledge and handle these cases.

“It would be better if Oh yes “We admit that there was (sexual violence), but the company has handled it well,” said Eni.
