Sexual Harassment – Evil of Society


Ms. Gurpreet Kaur

Assistant Professor ,Deptt. of CSE, MVSIT

The concept of harassment is trivial to everyone. Just ignore is what most people say. In my opinion, the more you tolerate it, the more it will happen.

Sexual harassment was common in diverse employment sectors, according to a 2017 poll by the Indian National Bar Association,it was discovered that the majority of women preferred not to report sexual harassment to management due to fear of humiliation, a lack of understanding of reporting regulations, or a lack of trust in the complaints system.

Sexual harassment in India is known as ‘eve-teasing’ and it is defined as unwelcome sexual gestures or behavior, whether directly or indirectly. The patriarchal perspectives and cultural beliefs that teach male domination in every sphere of society are the root causes of sexual harassment in India. Women’s lack of confidence stems from the way they’ve been taught and trained to suffer in silence.

Men in India are feeling insecure as a result of recent economic and social developments that have altered power dynamics between men and women. To cope with their emotions of insecurity, some males turn to harass women at work.

The global #MeToo movement erupted in October 2017, with millions of survivors sharing their stories of gender-based violence on social media. This resulted in increased public scrutiny of high-profile male personalities, resulting in resignations and legal action in certain cases. However, the #MeToo campaign in India omitted women from the informal sector, where 95 percent of women work.

Although several regulations have been enacted to limit incidences of sexual harassment, it continues to exist in workplaces, public places, schools, and institutions. We need to change the way society thinks and provide everyone with equal chances and a safer environment.
