New Delhi, July 24: In order to enable women employees of the government to file complaints regarding sexual harassment at workplace. Today the Ministry of Women and Child Development launched ‘She- box’ Sexual Harassment e-complaint box.
While after launch, Manekar Gandhi said that "We are also going to soon conduct a national survey to assess the nature and magnitude of sexual harassment at the workplace.” The WCD Minister also instructed officials to make the 'SHe-box' (sexual harassment electronic box) as "interactive" as possible.
"To begin with, central government women employees can file complaints, but we are going to widen the ambit to include the private sector as well," she said.
"We just need to make a few changes in our online interface. Once it is done, employees from private companies would also be able to lodge complaints," Gandhi added. The decision to host an online platform for sexual harassment cases was taken by the WCD ministry last October after the minister received complaints from women employees in various ministries.
