Google employees protest worldwide

Thousands of Google employees protested the company's handling of sexual harassment complaints against high-level executives and demanded more transparency around such incidents.

The walkouts were prompted by a New York Times report that Google gave former executive Andy Rubin a $90 million exit package and protected him despite accusations of sexual misconduct.

Employees and contractors from all over the world, many of them women, staged protests outside Google offices that extended to social media with the hashtag #googlewalkout.
