LSR advocates the empowerment of women and has zero tolerance for sexual harassment. The college has an Internal Complaints Committee which looks swiftly and diligently into matters related to sexual harassment. Complaint boxes have been placed at three different places in college for the reporting of grievances. Boards containing details of all members of the Committee have also been displayed. LSR has tried to create awareness on the issue of sexual harassment by conducting workshops and lectures by lawyers and activists. Self-defence workshops have also been organised.
In 2015, the college collaborated with the NGO Jagori and undertook a safety audit of the areas around college. An app named ‘safetipin’ was used to assess nine parameters namely lighting, openness, visibility, people, security, walk path, public transport, gender usage and general feeling. The app also allows the user to record hazards and harassments. In 2016 the committee along with the Women’s Development Cell hosted a legal literacy workshop with respect to domestic violence and sexual harassment at the work place. The workshop was conducted jointly by Metropolitan Judicial Services Member Chetna Singh, Secretary Delhi Legal Services Authority Monika Saroha and Delhi Metropolitan Magistrate Shreya Arora Mehta.
