Paper Title
Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace and the Legal Measures in India
  Jyotimala Das

Sexual harassment at work place is a form of gender discrimination which violates a women's fundamental right to equality and right to life which is guaranteed by the Constitution of India. Apart from being a dehumanizing act, it is an unlawful intrusion on her right to privacy. It is a serious threat to her self-esteem, self-respect and her self-confidence. A report of the International Labour Organization has estimated that one third of the women in industrialized society are sexually harassed at work-place. It has now become a global issue. A survey of working women carried out by the National Commission for Women reveals that no doubt the number of cases filed for sexual harassment has risen but women employees are still reluctant to report the matter to the concerned authority. Indeed, women suffer silently and avoid lodging report because of various reasons like fear of losing jobs, fear of being neglected by her family members, her fellow co-workers. In short, sexual harassment is a heinous crime and needs to be stopped through legal measures. This will certainly encourage greater participation of women workers in work place.
