Menís group opposes sexual harassment at workplace bill

All India Men's Welfare Association (AIMWA) has termed Protection of Women against Sexual Harassment at Workplace Bill, introduced in Lok Sabha, "anti-men".

The NGO said the inquiry proceedings proposed in the 2010 Bill were designed to deny justice to men. The internal complaints committee, as provided in section 4 of the Act, shall be headed by a woman and would have at least two women members "committed to the cause of women", it said. It said the term had not been explained in the Act, but in common parlance it meant "a feminist woman".

Similarly, a local committee constituted under section 7 of the Act was chaired by an "eminent woman in the field of social work committed to the cause of women" and representatives of NGOs "committed to the cause of women", AIMWA said.

Civilised jurisprudence of any society required unbiased judges, it said, adding, no man respondent could expect justice from such biased jury.
