In current times, women aren’t safe anywhere, be it outside or their own homes. So if we talk about workplace, the condition of women’s safety remains the same. The instances of sexual harassment at workplace are so very common in our society. We realised from the #metoo movement as well how unsafe women are in every sphere of their lives.
When it comes to work environment, women are often forced to form sexual relationships with their superior to get a promotion or some other benefits. These are called the cases of transactional sexual harassment and they are very common nowadays. There are also a lot of instances of women being the victims of improper behaviour from their male colleagues. So basically, women aren’t safe anywhere. They can’t even go to their workplace without fearing about their right to live with dignity and respect. No matter where they go, they are always viewed as objects to satisfy men’s sexual needs.
