Indore, February, 2021: Women are worshipped in our country as goddess Lakshmi. It is true that amongst the backward class giving birth to a girl child is still a tabboo but in most of the advanced cases birth of a girl child is considered to be lucky as goddess Lakshmi is the god that empowers money and strength. Embrassing womenhood and ensuring safety of the female employees PR 24x7 one of the leading PR agencies in the North India has constituted a Women Harassment Committee. Keeping in mind the pros-cons, advantages – disadvantages, bullying & molestation a women might have to face in times like these, this committee will look after all such complaints and take every constructive step to safeguard the female employees in the office and its premises.
Women have been entitled to inequality since birth, but stating that their status will remain same will be injustice to their womenhood. Women today are taking every possible step to walk shoulder- to-shoulder to match the needs of a household with men and saluting their spirit of competitiveness we at PR 24x7 are obliged to be a 60% female driven organisation. But looking at the outer world and the drastic increase in the number of reported cases of exploitation and molestation taking care of the female employees and their safety is the top-most need of the hour.
Commenting on the formation of the committee Mr. Atul Malikram, Founder, PR 24x7 in a statement said; “Today women are working brilliantly whether it is from Office, Work-from-home, working remotely or even while travelling. The sense of growth and professionalism has grown amongst women with every passing day. But their safety at work or while travelling to work has been a question mark and will remain until we don’t unite and take a step for the betterment of the same. Any kind of results are an outcome of small steps, we as one of the leading firms in India are taking these small steps to encourage and empower our female work-force. The constituted Women Harassment Committee consists of 7 senior most employees of the organisation including lawyer Ekta Sharma, who will be taking care of the legal aspects of the committee and its rules and regulations.”
Keeping in mind the safety of women, many small and big laws have been enacted by the government of India to protect women and their rights. However despite these laws and amendments by the government the case of molestation and exploitation against women are increasing day on day. However, its time to raise an alarm and talk about women, their safety and concerns both in society and at work both government and society have to come together and find solutions for their safety. PR 24x7 has taken one step to support this initiative and encourage society to also support it.
