Eve-teasing or sexual harassment of women in public places is one of the most challenging social problems in both rural and urban India which deprives them of basic human rights. The constitution of India has granted equal rights to both men and women but still women face extreme discrimination and violence and thus occupies low status in Society. The study was conducted in Kamal and Sirsa districts of Haryana state. From these districts two blocks namely Indri from Kamal and Bada Gudha from Sirsa district were selected randomly. From the selected blocks, four villages namely Kheri Maan Singh and Jain Pura Sidhana (Indri) and Birn wala, BurjBhangu (Bada Gudha) were drawn randomly. From the selected villages, 200 respondents were also selected randomly. Interview Schedule was prepared to collect the desired information as per objectives of the study. Overwhelming majority (81.39%) remained silent, 55.81% gave verbal threat to accused and 16.27% complained to parents. Likewise, 11.62% each complained to the parents of accused and slapped/hitted the accused. In both regions maximum numbers of respondents remained silent.

Abstract


Eve-teasing or sexual harassment of women in public places is one of the most challenging social problems in both rural and urban India which deprives them of basic human rights. The constitution of India has granted equal rights to both men and women but still women face extreme discrimination and violence and thus occupies low status in Society. The study was conducted in Kamal and Sirsa districts of Haryana state. From these districts two blocks namely Indri from Kamal and Bada Gudha from Sirsa district were selected randomly. From the selected blocks, four villages namely Kheri Maan Singh and Jain Pura Sidhana (Indri) and Birn wala, BurjBhangu (Bada Gudha) were drawn randomly. From the selected villages, 200 respondents were also selected randomly. Interview Schedule was prepared to collect the desired information as per objectives of the study. Overwhelming majority (81.39%) remained silent, 55.81% gave verbal threat to accused and 16.27% complained to parents. Likewise, 11.62% each complained to the parents of accused and slapped/hitted the accused. In both regions maximum numbers of respondents remained silent.
