#MeToo - Sexual Harassment: How have things changed in the last 12 months?

Exactly, a year ago, many of you participated in the polls on #MeToo Sexual Harassment at workplaces and shared your or your family member's experiences on the subject. The survey suggested that 78% of the sexual harassment cases wen unreported.

As the discussion and survey completes a year, we would like to seek your inputs on how were the last 12 months at your workplace. Did you or members of your family experience a change in the way their workplace created awareness and action on issues of sexual harassment. Have HR and management at companies become more approachable? Is there swift action? Or, has women hiring taken a hit, esp at startups and small businesses. We look forward to your open feedback and do share this post link with all your colleagues and friends so we can all express more, create awareness and address this issue better.

Below are the links to the LocalCircles survey and a few media reports to refresh your memory.

Its the ideas, not the system or process or people. more  
I agree with Bhadra Saraswati's views. Too much of importance and sympathy is given to women, which is greatly misused against men. Corporates think it is safe to take some action against men for alleged sexual harassment even if it is not a genuine one. Everyone tries to show that he is compliant. Look at what happened about a year back to Nana Patekar, M J Akbar and others. None could prove charges levelled against these persons but their image was tarnished. What happened to those who tarnished? Nothing. They have gone scot free. Media should question as they haunted these persons. more  
Earlier Money but now, Wealth, Power, Supported Association IS MISMANAGING the concept of Women more  
Simply providing protection to women against, only one form of harassment i.e. 'sexual harassment' doesn't serve any purpose unless the same is coupled with her employment rights or her rights as an employee at the workplace. Please enact strong laws to protect her rights as an employee at the workplace.

What about other forms of harassment that a women faces at workplace like 'discrimination' deprivation from being 'promoted' to a higher level despite good performance etc., the right to not being thrown out of employment without any notice, or extracting forced resignation from women employees by the employers.

In fact I would say that after the enactment of the sexual harassment law and 'me too' campaign, the sexual harassment at work place has hardly come down and also note that other forms of harassment are on a rise these days. All the members including the external member of the Internal Complaints Committee are easily bought up or manipulated by the companies. They are hardly effective.

Simply making laws without the same being backed by a strong enforcement mechanism makes no sense as it is as good as not making any law at all. more  
It works both ways, situation still grim for some women while others use this as tool to threaten men.Some places, work environment has more  
So many cases of men being falsely accused by women for either new found power because police and everyone is beginning to support women at cost of men. Also I have heard many cases of women blaming men to get 'hush' money. Police must not fall for trap by women and families and begin to accuse men without proper evidence. We do not trust police at all in this country - too much history of corruption!!! No ethic to be just only extort so now with women being give so much power there is and well be more trouble with false case! If police are just and trained properly then women and men will be protected nicely. more
