Sexual harassment in the workplace

A few years back I once worked at Zim owned institution and our boss was based in another country.Our team consisted of 1 male and 3 females,myself being the only Zimbabwean.
One Monday morning our boss flew in and when he saw me he said,"Marrieta,you look so beautiful today ,may I carry you".I ignored and walked out of his office. Around 4pm,as we were rounding off,he comes to my desk asks if he can come to my for dinner.I told him that my landlord doesn't allow males pamba.After a week of trying he left calling me at midnight to a point where I wld put my phone on flight mode.
We worked for two months without a salary(all of us)then one day he flew in again and unfortunately I had not gone to work,I was sick.He gave the other colleagues at least a month's salary.When I asked for mine he told me that he wasn't going to give me because I had refuses to make him happy . Well I had to find other means to pay the bills.I mean,God always provides.
This happens a lot in the workplaces and schools where the victims are mostly women.I don't know what can be done to stop such
