Eve-teasing has been the most talked topic in our country during the recent years. Eve-teasing, often known as sexual harassment. Usually school or college going girls and women working at educational institutions, offices and factories become victims of this social evil. There are many reasons behind eve-teasing. Firstly, lack of moral values and free exposure to ultra-modern fashion cause eve-teasing. Secondly, want of consciousness of law enforcing agencies is another reason for it. Thirdly and most importantly, gender discrimination is one of the main reasons for eve teasing. The girls and women are usually victimised by teenage boys, rickshaw pullers, bus drivers, street vendors. Making vulgar comments, whistling and sending SMS through mobile phone, e-mail, internet etc are the easiest means that-teasers use to harass the girls. Eve-teasing leaves deep psychological effects on the victims. Eve-teasing increases girls' drop out rate from schools and colleges. Teased girls are married off before they gain mental and physical maturity. Establishing human rights, empowering rural governance and removing gender disparity could be the effective tools for curbing this social curse. Raising public awareness can play the key role towards curbing this heinous act.
