Naina Jha conducted an awareness workshop about sexual harassment for the women of a Self Help Group, “Didi Ki Rasoi” on 27th June. It was attended by 10 women.
The workshop commenced with Naina asking the women if they had ever faced street harassment like whistling, honking, staring, etc. Many women confirmed being a victim of sexual harassment on the streets. She then went ahead and explained to the women, in detail, sexual harassment and its types. Naina herself shared her own experiences of facing harassment, which motivated and inspired a few women to speak up.
She further spoke about the laws related to sexual harassment and how the law protects the victims of sexual harassment. Subjects like how to file an FIR and rights of a citizen while filing an FIR were also discussed.
