Today, thousands of Google employees at various locations have laid down their work to send a signal against sexism at work within the company. These events were organized via the #GoogleWalkout hashtag on Twitter, where various photos and videos of the walk outs are beeing shared. Walk outs happened in Dublin, London, Zurich, New York City, Tokyo and other locations.

The protesters demand a transparency report on sexual misconduct in the company, which should be publicly accessible. Furthermore, equal opportunities and an end to wage inequality are beeing demanded. Furthermore the protesters demand that an employee representative gets a seat on the company's board of directors. The original trigger for this protest was a report in the New York Times in which it was revealed that Google had deliberately covered up sexual misconduct by three senior executives. One of these employees is said to be Android co-founder Andy Rubin, who left the company in 2014 and received a $90 million exit package.

The protest comes at a time when the MeToo and TimesUp movements, especially in the US, have been fuelling the debate about gender equality in recent months.
