AG Says Consensus Needed On Definition Of Sexual Harassment


Legislation dealing with sexual harassment may become law in Antigua & Barbuda but not before consultations.

That’s according to Attorney General, Steadroy Benjamin who told state media, the government is considering a CARICOM model bill that’s being circulated around the region.

The AG said for the bill be to given acceptance stakeholders will first have to come to a consensus on the definition of the sexual harassment.

“Behavioral patterns change from society to society and what would deem sexual harassment in a developed country would not necessary in the West Indian culture be deemed to be sexual harassment”, Benjamin told state media.

  1. Sexual harassment is sexual harassment no matter if you’re in the Caribbean or developed countries. Yes the cultures are different but the act itself is the same. How about we adopt a worldwide model as opposed to a limited CARICOM one?

  2. Women sexually harass men all the time, so it is important to ensure that women are heavily punished by the courts for their devious and actions against men. Also, it is important to ensure that swift and great punishment is dished out against women who make false accusations against innocent men.

    Also, the ‘CARICOM Model’ for sexual harassment is polluted by the left-wing white-race social justice warriors from the EU, US (Democrats) and Canada that give ‘financial grants’ to CARICOM so that it is forced to adopt left-wing polluted ideology. We should never trust CARICOM’s left-wing radicals to make our laws in Antigua!

  3. I wonder if the AG has the same thoughts on rape and sexual activities with a minor?. It would be interesting to see the Caribbean version as against the developed world version.
