About the Competition
The moot court proposition covers areas like Sexual Harassment at Workplace, Human Rights, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Corporate Governance and other global concerns. Violence against women remains devastatingly pervasive and starts alarmingly young. Prominent news headlines grab our attention towards sexual harassment at the workplace.
New data from WHO and partners manifests that across their lifetime, 1 in 3 women, around 736 million, are subjected to physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner or sexual violence from a non-partner – a number that has remained largely unchanged over the past decade. As of 2019, there are approx 19.45% working women in India out of the total female population which is estimated around 48% of the total population.
The rate of crime in the workplace against women has been increasing rapidly, not just in our country and also around the globe.
In a society where violence against women is posed just to show the patriarchal value operating in society, these values of men pose the greatest challenge in curbing sexual harassment. No female worker is safe and the sense of security is lacking in them.
Sexual harassment is rooted in cultural practices and is exacerbated by power relations at the workplace. Unless there is enough emphasis on sensitization at the workplace, legal changes are hardly likely to be successful. Workplaces need to frame their own comprehensive policies on how they will deal with sexual harassment. Instead of cobbling together committees at the court’s intervention, a system and a route of redress should already be in place.
As a leading institution of this country, DME endeavours to provide budding lawyers with the best possible exposure in terms of practical experience, and they believe that by organising such academic events, they strive to achieve that aim.
This event incites to provide a platform to the students and faculty of law to sharpen their minds and showcase their legal knowledge.
