After the widespread global conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace with the #MeToo movement, Indian women have banded together to make others more aware of their rights.
The India Ministry for Women and Child Development has launched SHe-Box or Sexual Harassment Electronic Box. This online complaint form allows women to safely and securely file against those who act against them in the workplace.
SHe-Box was originally only for government employees, but the app has been released to all women in the private sector.
India has had only 500 reported incidents in 2017, as opposed to the 27,000 in the United States. Hopefully, SHe-Box will give a louder voice to the marginalized women in India.
