Prevention of Sexual Harassment
Sexual Harassment is a serious offence and results in the violation of fundamental rights to equality, liberty and life of a person.
Sexual harassment includes any unwanted conduct of sexual undertones which demeans, humiliates or creates a hostile and intimidating environment. Such conduct can be physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct of sexual nature or any other act which amounts to harassment on the grounds of sex. It may be a single instance or persistent conduct.
This categorically includes physical contact, demands or requests for sexual favours, sending undesirable sexually coloured oral or written messages, text, email, or any such messages by electronic, manual or other means, stalking and other acts of such nature.
