This is the latest study and appears on the front page of a leading newspaper.. I have never understood that where do these people do carry out such studies.. Why have I never been a part of any? Of course we should not forget that there are different classes of people living in our country, still how true are such studies?

Perhaps the study is right.. Well.. We can't just look at few people around us and decide .. Anyways there is more of India than those metros and that is exactly where such things are still prevalent..

I think times have changed and men are accepting gender equality. We are trying to equalize things. In that course such studies create negative impression and wash away all the good which men today are trying to do..

NO LAW ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD will be passes that promotes gender equality and removes the favourable conditions enacted for women by these statutes. What women want is both the worlds. Gender Equality where it is convenient to them, and the portrayal of them as a weaker sex where it is convenient. You cannot have both. This demand is somewhat similar to the demands for reservation of the "Backward Classes (BC)". A BC candidate, if found in the Open merit list normally opts for his inclusion in the "Open Quota" leaving his BC vacancy to be filled by someone else. This way the quota increases by more than 50%

I am sure most people writing against this, and accepting that men have indeed accepted gender equality, are only thinking about their own middle class, upper caste urban, organized set ups... India is so much more diverse than that... where situations have not changed!!! But have they really changed in Urban areas???!! We need to think

Ravali,  Indian men used to treat the women very well, I am not sure if you have seen women in any other country..  In most of the other countries, women are not allowed to come out, cannot dress as they wish or show off their dresses, not allowed to entertain themselves, not allowed to study (this is happening in most of Islamic Countries).  They are treated as sex objects and child bearing machines.  But in India, Womens were having lot of freedom in all the aspects for example in Reservation etc.   But very few people were using those.

i dont know to what extent it is ther is kind of social stigma attached with the sexual matters in the typical indian mentality,thinking about any aspect of it is considered kind of evil,thuogh the development(hyped) in (perhaps only) getting privileges for comfort is become easier for (again) a section of society ,we r considering it to be development and somewhere the (sexual matter)stigma is hidden or is not in the immediate view,i believe ,though ther is this kind of mentality in ither countries too,well we must work betterment of perhaps oneself own too,and be a right kind of system by upbringing of the right things,and giving the equality to live for the feminine in our society,sure i shall try n support the cause

Our culture is male dominated. Females are given second rate citizens status every where including when they come up in families may be due to evolutionary traps of parents where they give weightage to the offsprings  that can maintain the family name.

Females on marriage degenerate to the 'maker of babies and baker of brownies' status. This should change, females should be allowed to grow and develope in family surroundings, choose their own partners after compatibility and cohesion checks which may happen if we introduce culture of healthy 'dating' procedures as they grow in society. Male should be culturaly trained to be more corteous towards female gendre, treating them as friends, sisters or mothers.

This hopefuly happen in metros, but there too the male culture is selfseeking and need to change into platonic levels of existential relatioships evolving out of friendships where compatibility and cohesion with similar likes and dislikes manifests in relatioships.

Probably our economy need to advance leaps and bounds with environments ready for even females to commute themselves to work a standard practice before there can be drastic changes in female harassments.

As per news often published in Indian dailies it is seen that sexual harrasments and gender inequalities often come into play at workplaces.Women employees are often harrased to give quick promotions in their job or to earn undue advantages while working.

It is partly true as per the various surveys. I think, the present generation of Indian Women that are coming out, choosing their careers of their own. The sexual harrassment will comedown, if at all it is high, if they stick to Indian Cult & Values largely even when they are at work without much inclination/imitation of western trends/culture. As per gender equality -- only the better will win among men or women.

It is a typical cover up for the rising number of sexual harassment cases. Of course sexual harassment has been a part and parcel of the socio-economic relations in India - starting right from the Landlord rapes. Sexual Harassment may not be manifested explicitly like that in the organized sector, but it does exist, what is commonlyt referred to as eve teasing is also a form of sexual harassment. If you are indeed concerned about the ambiguity of the term, please familiarize yourself with the Supreme Court definition of the same.

These ideas are coming only from few female without arising any valid example.If they ask their mom the similar question,answer will be of course not.India is a multi cultural and variety mindset on this subject.However today indian culture,education level,and mindset are changing very fast.Women are also liberised themselves to extent very fast.In such trnsition period some stray incidents taking place,and highlighting such issues will make bad impact on the society.Blaming opposite sex may harm to maintain peaceful coexistance between men & women rather we should raise our voice against such instances whenever found.The term sexual harrasement is very touchy & complicated term to express in a proper manner.To some extent some women are also responsible for such harassment also.However this topic is not very easy to express unanimously.As a whole it is baseless and disputed topic.

Man..Oh sorry, woman, there are instances where women too harass sexually their male counterparts.So can we paint all the women with the same brush?No.

Overall, times have changed and both the sexes are beginning to feel the importance of team work, not in sexually harassing but in sexually cooperating in getting important tasks done. Yes, there are parts in rural areas, where sexual harassment is prevalent, but am sure given the right education system, they will come at par with the changed times.

Women as a whole all over the world, and in India in particular DO NOT WANT full gender equality. This will put them at a serious LOSS. There are a lot of laws, labour laws etc. that are heavily stilted in favour of women. They want to capitalise on that first AND also ask for gender equality. The problem is created by the ladies themselves who want the best of both worlds. NOT POSSIBLE.

I completely disagree with this debate!! we have so many countries leading in such cases, like Saudi Arabia and othre gulf countries where women doesn't have any rights. They are treated as slaves there...checkout the bbc or cnn news for details. India is far better than any other countries. Our women in ndia have complete freedom to rais etheir voice against any kind of harassement, no matter its..sexual, emotional or social!!

India, a multi-cultural, multi-lingual and multi-religious secular country, with over 1.2 billion population stick to traditional roots and a very strong value system for the genders! Women, by and large, manage the households, rear children, get their children educated and they are empowered at home to manage finances too! So long as they have not crossed the barrier, this gender equality issue will not arise. This country endure marriages till death!

I won't to support this study even though something is correct in some classes and community. where the women have power there it is not false, and where the women have no power there it is true. It is not only the case of Indian but for all world. second thing the survey is only pointing on the women, but if the survey pointing all helpless category/class it also true. The main reason to avoid such situation, to be strong and competitive better than beg for equality

Survey needs to be unbiased and need to cover heterogeneously, all group of people. Also, need to consider the societal norms & culture prevalent there.

This is baseless. The study was conducted by the Times Of India and was restricted to male concept of gender equality in the workplace. Moreover, the statistical data was of men wary of sharing workspace with a lady - not of men preying on ladies. India is changing for the better and really quickly - airline pilots, defence personnel, merchant navy officers and now train drivers - way to go!!!!

            We should not believe in these type of studies, because the people who are conducting these type of studies are interested only in publicity rather than its usefulness for the community. Gender inequality is done by the nature itself, nor by the man !! Also what is meant by the sexual harassment ? The womans are misusing their gender for wooing the males, but at the same time she refuses sexual relationship for those persons who are attracted towards her. Isn't it the sexual harassment of males?

Ravali thinks that all Indians are similar. No, there are Hindu.Muslim Christian, Jain etc. Here I am focussing on Hindus. Gujarati Hindus have different story to tell, where Women lead the society. Indians are of festive mood and sex is celebrated. Hindus believe in long standing relations. Muslims are entitled to multi relations and Christians have frequent Divorce problem. With modern Civil laws, for Hindus, women are very powerful and on death of Husband, there power is tremendous. Ladies are vulnerable physically and that is not Indian problem alone.

Believe me, Indian men treat the women very well. In most of the other countries (developing world where this study has been conducted), women are not allowed to come out, cannot dress well or show it off, cannot study, cannot entertain themselves or speak before the males. They are treated as sex objects and child bearing machines. You do not see these things in India. Indian women are highly educated, in respectable jobs and are very independent. All the ladies participating in this debate are examples.

Ravali,  I am not sure if you have seen women in any other country.  Believe me, Indian men treat the women very well.  In most of the other countries, women are not allowed to come out, cannot dress as they wish or show off their dresses, not allowed to entertain themselves, not allowed to study.  They are treated as sex objects and child bearing machines.  Look at India.  They are much more independent and well-treated and respected.  You are an example of that.

Sexual harassment is not just confined to India and some other part of the world. It is everywhere. When compared to western world generally Indian women is not financially independent as yet. Indian traditions are different from any part of the world. Indian women respect these traditions. Many of the times men may be taking advantage of this. Illiteracy of women folk is one other contributing factor. As miss Smita opined Times have been changing and gender equality is being accepted in India also. I condemn the statement "Indian men first in sexual harassment and last in gender equality."
