Against gender-based violence

Gender-based violence - sexist violence, violence based on real or perceived sexual orientation and/or gender identity - is unfortunately not absent from our community.

From ordinary sexism, homophobia or transphobia to physical and sexual violence, harassment or other violations of personal rights, such violence is not tolerated at UNIL, which aims to offer each of its members a healthy, safe and respectful working and studying environment.
