Recognising and classifying 'wrong' or 'bad' workplace behaviour may be difficult as this understanding depends on multiple factors, from workplace culture to the cultural settings the co-workers belong to. However, there is an acute lack of awareness on sexual harassment among women in particular, and the masses in general. Women often fall prey to harassment that leaves a despairing effect on their mental, emotional and physical health, and work performance. Several incidents go unreported by victims as they are unaware of their rights, redressal mechanisms, and committees that help resolve issues.
