Don´t feel a sense of shame. Tell the harasser very clearly that you find this behavior offensive.
Don´t ignore the harassment in the hope that it will stop on its own; come forward and complain.
Talk to somebody you trust about the harassment. It will not only give you strength, but also help others to come forward and complain.
Keep a detailed record of all incidents related to the sexual harassment. If you feel the need to register a formal complaint later, this record will be helpful.
Most importantly, the victim must never blame herself for the harassment.
If informal methods such as telling the perpetrator to stop harassing do not succeed, the victim can lodge a complaint through email or by a telephone call to any of the members.
The complainant´s name and identity will be kept confidential.
After it has been proved that the offender has indulged in sexual harassment, appropriate punitive action will be taken against him, irrespective of his status in the institute - whether staff, faculty or student.
Only victim or her heir can file the complaint
The victim can contact the Women Cell members by email to email@example.com or a telephone call and then lodge a complaint by filling the appropriate forms.
The Supreme Court, which regards sexual harassment as a violation of human rights and as a form of systematic discrimination against women, has issued guidelines to prevent, as well as punish, perpetrators of sexual harassment.
It is legally mandatory for employers and administrators to deploy measures for combating and redressing incidents of sexual harassment in their organizations.
