"The genesis of working women was a revolutionary incident in the annals of
Indian society. Now a days it is ground reality that women are backbone of
any economy. They, who earlier stayed at home to fulfill the desires of
male community and to attend their domestic duties, are now balancing work
and home simultaneously, to participate in economic development on equal
footing with men. But it was not over-night revolution. When women came out
from their home to do work, they faced an old problem but new issue in the
hands of their supervisors, colleagues and co-workers i.e. sexual
harassment. Experiences of day to day life of common Indian societies
reveal that discrimination against women begins not only at their birth but
even before it and continues till their last breath.
In this book, an attempt has been made to cover all aspects of sexual
harassment of women at workplace. For this purpose, the decisions of
Hon'ble Supreme Court and various high Courts have been incorporated to
show the complexities of this man-made problem. Further, the draft bill has
been also included in it."
