NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Women are leading the charge to shed light on fraud and waste that harms taxpayers, corporations, and more. The newly-launched Women Whistleblowers website features ten women who courageously came forward – and is a forum for others looking to expose and remedy fraud and injustice.
WomenWhistleblowers.com highlights ten women who persisted, going head-to-head with some of the largest corporations and organizations to change corporate behavior and public policy. Among them are Sherron Watkins, who blew the lid off the Enron scandal; Bunny Greenhouse, who testified to waste and fraud by Halliburton in its operations during the Iraq war; and Coleen Rowley, the FBI whistleblower who exposed mishandling of intelligence that could have prevented the 9/11 attacks.
For every one of the women profiled, there are dozens of other women in a position to speak out against misconduct, but may have concerns about who they can talk to and what they can say. “It’s a challenge to have your ethics and instinct clash, sometimes horribly, with the reality of what you are seeing around you. But it is noble and often empowering to step forward and do something about it,” said Rachel Geman, Editor at WomenWhistleblowers.com and Partner at the national plaintiffs’ law firm of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein. “We hope to be in a position to assist and partner in giving voice to other courageous women who seek to combat fraud and misconduct.”
