Movement against Sexual Harassment

Mehergarh remained the secretariat and the hub for AASHA (an Alliance Against Sexual Harassment) over several years. With other AASHA members, it succeeded in getting the Anti-Sexual Harassment Laws passed in 2010.Since March 2010, after the passage of two laws, the focus has been on effective implementation of these laws nationwide. This involves promoting Anti-Sexual Harassment Policy in the public and private sectors, media campaigns, seminars & residential training of trainers to give conceptual clarity on the issue, detailed understanding of the two laws and proper implementation. Although the movement of AASHA was successfully concluded in December 2011, Mehergarh continues the work on implementation of the legislation in full vigour.
