sexual harassment at workplace against men

Sexual Harassment is one of the biggest crimes that exist in the society now and even after the advent of several statutes to remove it. Sexual harassment has been described in section 354 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, which states that ‘Sexual harassment is: unwelcome physical contact and advances, including unwanted and explicit sexual overtures, a demand or request for sexual favors, showing someone sexual images (pornography) without their consent, and making unwelcome sexual remarks’. Touching a person inappropriately without their consent, or making a person feel uncomfortable by staring at them, stalking them, looking at them in an uncouth manner and making sexual actions like kissing noises and or touching oneself sexually in the presence of another all account towards sexual harassment. However, when it comes to men being the victims of sexual harassment, the government unfortunately does not have any measures of preventing it. The beginning of section 354A, starts with ‘any man..’, giving sexual harassment a gender, and making it extremely difficult for any man to report crimes of sexual assault against them. There has been an extreme rise in sexual harassments against men, a few of them reported against but no actions as such have been taken for mending it.
