Gender Mainstreaming (in programmes and institutions) projects
Sexual harassment affects all women in some form or the other.PRIA was among the first civil society organisations to form an internal complaints committee (Committee against Sexual Harassment) in accordance with the Supreme Court guidelines. It has also played a vital role in influencing its partners and networks to comply with the Supreme Court guidelines. PRIA has successfully used the Vishaka Guidelines in the prevention and redressal of sexual harassment at the workplace and in keeping with the spirit of the law has gone beyond its mandate to understand the manifestations of discrimination within institutions in their internal functioning. Since 1998, PRIA has conducted trainings on gender mainstreaming and prevention of sexual harassment with panchayats and over 100 organisations throughout the country. PRIA launched an e-Campaign Against Sexual Harassment in January 2010 through an interactive website (www.priacash.org), has its own Facebook account page and is on Twitter trying to advocate and build understanding regarding gender sensitive workplaces.
