Description
Women were honoured and glorified during the Vedic period. But with the passage of time, they have been relegated to secondary position, compared to men. The material society was replaced by the patriarchal society. It is the 20th century women began to assert their rights. They began to come out of their shell and started gaining knowledge which led them to employment opportunities. Women’s economic independence is possible only if they are profitably employed. Economic independence of women will help in their emancipation and would accelerate the improvement of their status. But the working women are facing many problems of which sexual harassment at workplace has become a serious one. This crime against women, which outrages the modesty of women, has not been addressed properly. The opposition to the growing number of incidents in which working women were sexually harassed at their work  place gained momentum right from Bhavani devi’s case in Rajasthan.
