Marissa Borges conducted a workshop on Awareness of Sexual Harassment & Prevention with the IInd & IIIrd year students of G. J. Advani Law College, Bandra, Mumbai on 31st August 2019.
Along with the students, the workshop was also attended by the Honourable Principal Dr Shanti Desari & a few faculty members.
The concept of sexual harassment was discussed by explaining its definition and types. Some real-life examples of harassment were also shared. The students were conversant with the laws. However, their key learning from the session was the categorisation of the different types of sexual harassment. Some students had researched on the judiciary system. They shared their experiences & expressed their interest in collaborating with Safecity to help fight gender-based issues. The students then downloaded the Safecity app & decided to share it with their peers who could not make it to the session. The students found the session interesting & relatable.
The college management mentioned that they felt a connect in the session and they found it interactive. We would like to extend our thanks to the management of G. J. Advani Law college for providing us with the opportunity to conduct this session. We hope that this session benefited both the institution as well as the students in both academic and personal spheres of life.
