House Democrats on Wednesday introduced a bill aimed at combating sexual harassment and discrimination at the State Department.
The legislation, called the State Harassment and Assault Prevention and Eradication Act, seeks to ban forced nondisclosure or non-disparagement agreements and would increase training for sexual assault prevention, intervention and advocacy.
It also would establish an Office of Employee Advocacy to provide counseling, legal advice, representation, a 24/7 international hotline and employee advocates to assist in the complaint process.
The legislation also would require annual reports to Congress on claims and disciplinary action taken to hold perpetrators accountable and surveys to evaluate the impact of the new policies.
The measure was introduced by House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) and Reps. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) and Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), co-chair of the Democratic Womens Caucus.

Does this mean Democrats believe sexual harassment is permissible in any other agency?
It should include CONGRESS too, and while you are at it Release the Records for the Congressional Rape and Run Fund that was used to make the MILLIONS of DOLLARS in Payoffs
Have they not noticed who their POTUS candidate is??
Oh, the irony.
I cant believe democrats would be forfeiting their ability to use taxpayer money to cover up their own sex crimes. This must be fake news
“House Democrats on Wednesday introduced a bill aimed at combating sexual harassment and discrimination at the State Department.”
How about a bill to ban members of Congre$$ from investing $$$ in China.
Misleading title of bill. The State Department wants a sex therapist and couples therapy department because of all their sordid affairs in the workplace.
I don’t care how they word it, how great it sounds, or what it is supposed to ‘correct’, if the Democrats are for it, I am against it. It is that simple.
this is hilarious!!!
I could tell some stories..... ( we were on Embassy duty)
Ooooh; I have an idea: Let’s create a system, controlled by us, that will allow anyone to claim our opponents are racist and / or sexual predators. These people will be frog marched into our packed court where they will be humiliated and fired (unless they become our puppet).
This court will also be able to protect our people from any allegations.
