New Delhi: Jan 28, 2011
The Sonia Gandhi-led National Advisory Council (NAC) has written to the government, suggesting some major amendments to the Protection of Women against Sexual Harassment at Workplace Bill, 2010, ahead of a conference of State Ministers for women and child development, to be chaired by Union Minister Krishna Tirath. The conference agenda includes, among a host of issues, a look at this key piece of legislation. A NAC member explained that if the Bill was really intended “to promote gender equality and justice and the universally recognised human right to work with dignity,” it was of paramount importance to widen the scope of the Bill to include domestic workers.
