In the UK, half of all working women experience sexual harassment or gender discrimination at work. We've all heard the stories, and the ending always seems to be the same:
"It would have been my word against theirs, so I didn't say anything".
Or even, "It's just bad luck - there's nothing that can be done so I just found another job".
We've heard the stories too, and we decided that it was time to use our expertise to help. We're both veterans of the software and technology industry, and decided to find a way to give power and hope back to the millions of women who go through these stories every year. That's why we created Valla.
