It's never OK to touch someone without their permission
It's never OK to touch someone without their permission - Human Rights Commission
The Human Rights Commission has supported an open letter from the National Council of Women to Prime Minister John Key.
“It’s never OK to touch someone without their permission. There are no exceptions,’” said Human Rights Commissioner Dr Jackie Blue.
“I don’t know the full details of this incident but I acknowledge the young woman involved , welcome the Prime Minister’s apology and hope this incident can be resolved with dignity for all involved.”
“Talking about what’s acceptable and what isn’t is a conversation worth having and one every New Zealander needs to be part of.”
