2002-03 Action Research Project at Veermata Jijabai Technical Institute (VJTI) to Prevent Sexual Harassment in Educational Institutions.

Maharashtra State Commission for Women. Jointly undertaken with  the India Centre for Human Rights and Law, Mumbai

            This study aimed at overcoming the limitations of the earlier study by expanding the scope of the enquiry: The earlier study had  limited its enquiry to understanding the extent of sexual harassment on campus. It thus addressed the research questions to women student and staff and sought (through its training programmes) to empower women with knowledge of their rights. While these aims formed the core of the present study, its enquiry based was expanded to understanding men’s attitude to women, the reasons for their sexist prejudices. It also aimed at making men aware of the seriousness of the offense.
