Asish Kumar*, Nilesh Sharma, in Journal of Advances and Scholarly Researches in Allied Education | Multidisciplinary Academic Research


In recent years, several nations have made steps to combat workplace harassment and domestic violence, but less attention has been devoted to sexual harassment in public areas, particularly during women's commutes to work and school. Many more women are pursuing education and work in developing nations than in the past, which has raised the risk of sexual harassment in public settings. This kind of abuse is known as eve teasing in India, where the research was conducted. Catcalling, vulgar comments, and unwanted sexual touch such as stroking and fondling are all examples of Eve teasing. Tolerance of such instances may escalate to more serious kinds of abuse and inspire more people to take part. Laws, as necessary as they are, cannot bring about instant changes in broad public practices, especially those that are strongly established in a country's culture, such as eve teasing. In this study we have discussed about the violence against Women to upset their Dignity, Eve Teasing and its Aggravated Form, Insulting Modesty of a Women, Vishaka Guidelines, Interpretation of Section 354 and 509 of Indian Penal Code, Provoking a Woman's Sense of Dignity, The Phrase Eve-Teasing, Sexual Harassment and its Punishment, Voyeurism, Stalking, Eve-Teasing.
