This was in the form of a workshop titled 'Know Your Rights’ held at LSR and focussed on the measures and legislations that have been created to protect women from such crimes.
Esha Pandey, DCP, Special Unit for Women and Children conducted the workshop, providing insights from her own personal experiences as a woman working in the largely male dominated sector of law enforcement. Ms. Pandey discussed the crucial issue of consent. Further, she gave a presentation on the various laws and acts enacted to protect women's safety, including laws on rape and domestic violence. The interactive session was greatly beneficial in helping the students understand sexual harassment as well as the ways and means available to redress it.
A Nukkad Natak on Gender Sensitisation was conducted by the Internal Complaints Committee of LSR on 27th February 2018. The event highlighted the increasing instances of sexual harassment that women face in the different spheres of life. The play also depicted how harassment against women had been 'normalised' contributing gravely to gender inequality.
