The National Commission for Women on Thursday urged women to send their #MeToo stories to their dedicated email ID: firstname.lastname@example.org. based on which action will be taken.
In a statement, the Commission said it was “in receipt of formal written complaints from various women who have bravely come forward about instances of sexual harassment at their work place. The NVW follows a zero tolerance on sexual harassment of women at all workplaces and the commission committed to ensuring safety and dignity of women at all workplaces”. The Commission’s response came after several women came forward and shared on social media their experiences of sexual harassment in the entertainment and media industry.
The NCW is also in the process of gathering detailed information of the various sexual harassment allegations that have come to light in the media. The organisation is reaching out to the survivors of sexual harassment as the #MeToo storm intensified in the country with more women recounting their ordeal. Earlier, the NCW on appealed to the affected women to lodge written complaints and assured of all possible help.
