In India the Vishaka Guidelines (which came into force after the Vishaka and Others vs. State of Rajasthan), was a landmark legislative mechanism in 1997 to ensure prevention and redressal of sexual harassment at workplace and ensure gender equality and non discrimination at workplace. In response to the sexual harassment of a rural change agent, resulting in her gang rape, a Public Interest Litigation brought before the Supreme Court of India sought to address the pandemic of sexual harassment women experience at all workplaces. Specifically the petition sought legally binding directions from the Court which would specifically address prohibition, prevention and redress of sexual harassment at all workplaces.
