Gender Discrimination

There seems to be no place safe for women.

If at home they are abused by their husbands and other male family members and on the streets they are harassed, molested and raped, the workplace is no safer. Whether it is the offices of multinational companies, BPOs, the IT sector or the unorganized sector including household helps and laborers, the rate of harassment of women at the workplace is rising rapidly in the city.

A vast majority of women workers have experienced gender discrimination and harassment, which includes offensive sexist remarks, unwelcome passes and being offered promotion and better treatment if they are ‘cooperative’ – read ready to bestow sexual favors – by their seniors.

Though Parliament has passed a law against sexual harassment at the workplace, the rate has only been increasing. Although young girls – in the age group of 14-25 – more likely to be sexually harassed at the workplace, nowadays even women in their thirties and forties are facing this problem. Male colleagues using abusive language with women or passing sexist remarks is just the tip of the iceberg.

Try to solve them and take action and join us in petition against Gender Discrimination.
