An awareness program on “Sexual Harassment at the Workplace” was organised by School of Law, Ansal University on April 4, 2018. Ms. Avani Bansal, Supreme Court Advocate, founder of the popular YouTube channel “Hamara Kanoon” and an alumnus of HNLU Raipur and Oxford University, addressed the students, faculty and staff of the university on the topic of sexual harassment. She discussed the modern contours of sexual harassment and how it has become an all-pervasive nuisance fostered by an environment of silence and acceptance. Ms. Bansal demonstrated how most victims and survivors of sexual harassment resort to silence and our lives begin to end the day we stop speaking for things that matter and it is one such thing and threw some light on the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013. As a society, we have certain responsibility towards the victim to be able to let the person come out and speak about it openly as it can happen to anyone even within the four corners of the house by one’s very own family member. She talked about the importance of communal support for victims of sexual harassment at the workplace or elsewhere and the thin line between the compliment and harassment. She also reflected on how this law is being misused by women yet it is important to have a law favouring women for many reasons. This awareness programme was extremely beneficial for the students and these simple awareness programmes make a tangible difference given the fact that being law teachers and law students, we have the responsibility to bring in the change.
