As enshrined in the preamble to the Indian Constitution, “equal status and opportunity” for all citizens must be guaranteed. Each day, more and more women enter the workforce by expanding access to education and opportunities. Unfortunately, nearly 60% of them are vulnerable to constant sexual harassment at work. The worst denial of women’s rights to freedom and dignity is sexual harassment. It is not just a violation of women’s fundamental rights, but also a loss of motivation and productivity at work.
