HARASSMENT-FREE WORKPLACE

Sexual harassment and violence against women at workplaces and educational institutions can be prevented through formulation of specific laws, rights activists said at a discussion yesterday.

People do not feel compelled to follow only policies or guidelines. But once there is a law in place, everyone must abide by it to avoid punishment, they said.

Gender Platform, an alliance of civil society representatives and seven rights bodies, organised the discussion at The Daily Star Centre in Dhaka to discuss a draft law that the platform prepared recently to prevent sexual harassment and violence against women at workplaces and educational institutions.
