Gender Bias at Workplace


The article by Punam Sahgal and Aastha Dang, “Sexual Harassment at Workplace: Experiences of Women Managers and Organisations” (EPW, 2 June 2017), reflects the increasing rate of sexual harassment  of working women despite the fact that they are well educated and in a position to leave and opt for alternate livelihood opportunities. The writers’ argument holds water that sexual harassment at the workplace reflects men’s aggression against women who occupy positions traditionally in men’s purview.

The policies and work culture of economic organisations need to introduce parity between men and women in the workplace and management. Women should be assured that their complaints will not fall on deaf ears and they will be provided speedy justice. Women mostly refrain from registering complaints owing to the notion that far from justice they might be handed out defamation and neglect by the investigating officials.
