Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), the first woman to chair the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), will discuss the topical issue of addressing sexual harassment on Capitol Hill and beyond on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” tomorrow, Sunday, November 19, 2017, at 9:00 a.m.  As EEOC chair, Norton issued the first federal guidelines holding sexual harassment to be a violation of equal employment laws, which Norton administered, and the U.S. Supreme Court later upheld those guidelines.  Norton has introduced legislation to require that congressional employees receive the same comprehensive workplace protections now required by law in federal agencies and the private sector, including required sexual harassment training.  Norton has taken sexual harassment training by video and has required her staff to do the same.
