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

India itself may be far away by 100 years to catch up.

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
