Not safe at work

We look at what kinds of violence women face in different kinds of workplaces in India, and understand the law around sexual harassment in the workplace

We tend to think of workplaces as offices, places with desks and computers, but in fact, workplaces can be anywhere. They can be farms and factories, they can be our own homes, they can be places of worship, buses, trains and schools. To understand more about sexual harassment in workplaces in India and what to do about it, we speak to lawyer Mihira Sood, who explains the Prevention of Sexual Harassment Act and it's implementation, Amarpreet Kaur who tells us about a national survey on the subject, and Anita Cheria, an activist who works with garment workers in Bangalore.
