The Union Cabinet on approved the Protection of Women against Any Harassment at Workplace Bill, 2010, that ensures a safe environment for women at work place, both in the public and private sectors, in the organised and unorganized sectors.The Bill, will help in achieving gender empowerment and equality. Domestic help have, however, been kept out of the purview of the proposed law that also proposes a fine of Rs. 50,000 if found violating the provisions of the law.

The move will contribute to realization of their right to gender equality, life and liberty, and equality in working conditions everywhere. The sense of security will improve women's participation in work, resulting in their economic empowerment and inclusive growth.

Is it solving the problem? Are we aware that we are making NATIONAL SHAME DAY, while Harassing innocent girls and women around us.

The lives of millions of women in India are circumscribed by enforce extreme conditions created by men, many of whom impose their control over women with violence and Harassment. The Senate, already passed many bills, The Acid Control and Acid Crime Prevention Bill, The Prevention of Anti-Women Practices (Criminal Law Amendment), Women Protection Bill etc. which prohibits forced marriages, safe working environment, girl child abuse and other.. these bills gives women the right to get their share in inheritance and gives severe punishment to criminals physically harming women with any manner.


Criminal laugh at punishments and fines and keep the morals down.  No clear strategy for implementing these laws has been provided. These reforms will be of little practical benefit until federal and provincial authorities create mechanisms for compensating and rehabilitating victims of gender-based violence. Authorities must establish immediate benchmarks for assessing the implementation of these laws.



  1. Practicing those laws are more important than implementing.In India most of the laws remain within the paper...

  2. you write so well....great ideas.....
