Sexual harassment is nothing less than the showcasing of male dominance. Given an opportunity, such men (those committing sexual harassment) would try fulfilling their desire.
However, it is also not true that all cases of sexual harassment are such – where the accused is guilty of conceiving the intention of a sexual intercourse. But it also depends on each individual case and circumstances, because it may well be the case that the woman may also be at fault.
Studies find that sexual harassment is still endemic, often hidden, and present in all kinds of organizations. Yet, it is still not always viewed as a problem, which has to be systematically tackled.
Sexual harassment at the workplace has been one of the central concerns of the women’s movement in India since the 1980s. During the 1980s, militant action by the Forum Against Oppression of Women (Mumbai) against the sexual harassment of nurses in public and private hospitals by patients and their male relatives, ward-boys and other hospital staff; of airhostesses by their colleagues and passengers; of teachers by their colleagues, principals and management representatives; of female employees by their male coworkers and managers; of PhD students by their guides and s on and so forth received a lukewarm response from the trade unions and adverse publicity in the media.
According to the official statistics of 1991, one woman is molested every 26 min. Most cases are not reported by victims because of various reasons such as family pressures, the manner of the police, the unreasonably long and unjust process and application of law; and the resulting consequences thereof. According to The Supreme Court definition, sexual harassment is any unwelcome sexually determined behavior, such as:-
Laws under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section No: Actions Punishment: Section No: Absence acts and songs, to the Imprisonment for a term Annoyance of others like: Does up to 3 months or fine, or 209 any obscene act in any public both.
