Facing Sexual Harassment, Bullying, Intimidation, or Sexual Misconduct? Do you wanna protect yourself and want to participate in training, seminars, and workshops regarding Sexual Harassment?
If the answer is YES then join Students Defender. SD defend and sustain your rights at Pakistan’s colleges and universities.
Sexual Violence at college campuses is extremely widespread in Pakistan. There is a significant imbalance of power in colleges, the teachers and administrative staff can adversely affect the student’s future by lowering their grades and taking away extra-curricular opportunities from them. This makes students particularly vulnerable to sexual harassment. Sexual violence that is perpetrated by students against other students is also prevalent.
Harassment is defined in The Protection against Harassment of Women at the Workplace Act 2010 as, any unwelcome sexual advance, request for sexual favors or other verbal or written communication or physical conduct of a sexual nature or sexually demeaning attitudes, causing interference with work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment, or the attempt to punish the complainant for refusal to comply to such a request or is made a condition for employment.
