It is also a manifestation of power relations, as women are much more likely to be the victims of sexual harassment because of their already existing vulnerability, insecurity, and social conditioning to accept discrimination in silence. The research methodology adopted for this paper is doctrinal, statutes and secondary sources of information like case laws, books, articles, websites, newspapers etc. The aim of this research paper is to suggest measures to empower women and provide protection against sexual harassment and offer the right to work with dignity and non-discrimination.
