#STANDWITHME is an intitaive taken to support the unsaid fear and embarrassment which every working female faces. Sexual harassment is a complex,subtle and a highly subjective act of objectivity. The government has performed its action of creating a law for the protection of women under social pressure of VISHAKHA VS. STATE OF RAJASTHAN for the protection of women in their individual workplace; but is this all one needs? An existing act. The implementation of the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace(Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 lacks and so does the formation of Internal Complaints Committee.
Ms. Manorama, HR Head, Government Agency said' He took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my confidence and my own voice'. She says I couldn't stand for myself and face anyone in the premises, then a day came, and help walked in. Kaviya(advocate and counsellor) came as help and stood until the battle got over. She says she gave her life.
Such events are rust to iron, they not eat only the surface but also destroy the diginity of being a women. The question remains are we still victims? Let's be the one to support. Be the help. Be the need.
