"Only Complaints Against Sexual Harassment Come Under Women's Cell"

The Law on Sexual Harrassment

     The Supreme Court, which regards sexual harassment as a violation of human rights and as a form of systematic discrimination against women, has issued guidelines to prevent, as well as punish, perpetrators of sexual harassment.

     It is legally mandatory for employers and administrators to deploy measures for combating and redressing incidents of sexual harassment in their organizations.

The Women's Cell is Committed To

  • Observing the law on Sexual Harassment
  • Sensitising the community on gender issues
  • Addressing complaints from victims
  • Sexual Harassment Defined

         According to the Supreme Court, sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexually determined behaviour such as:

  • Physical contact, gestures, or stalking
  • A demand or request for sexual favors
  • Sexually oriented remarks
  • Showing pornography
  • Use of electronic media (phone, internet, intranet) for perpetrating any of the above
  • Any other unwelcome physical, verbal, or non-verbal conduct of a sexual nature

  •      It is important to note here that what constitutes sexual harassment is defined by the victim, and not by the perpetrator.
