Hi Friends,
Eve teasing is a very common scenario. The purpose for putting this up is something that happened 10 minutes back when i was down with an office colleague for a cup of tea.
There was this man as usual passing comments on ladies while talking to another person. My colleague was walking few blocks ahead of me, unaware of the comments.
Thankfully i have a very good eye sight and can do do lip reading :-)
I very well understood what he said, & as i passed by him gave him an eye to eye contact with some nice sweet comments ( some foul language that he understands ).
My question here is being a girl, is it that i should have ignored it and just passed by OR my reaction was correct OR like just give him some angry looks and walk away ??

this is what is the secenario today in almost all sectors where ladies are working or present...i dont understand what this guys get when they pass such cooments on a lady that also particulary on her body...what the hell is this society i dont understand...
Dear Ashlesha,
You are absolutely right!! But dear....Never take any comment lightly. Be serious in these matters because if u will laugh on it then they will think that you are a poor harmless gender who will never take any steps. Atleast be harsh n rude in reactions.
In my organization if someone pass a generalized comment about our gender then also I give them very hard time. The only problem I see today is that we work, we earn, we do everything on the name of women liberalization but when it comes to be reactive we aren't. Be reactive!!! Respect yourself and cherish your womanhood dear!!!

Samyak,
definitely these comments are not to be taken lightly. and if wrong reactions are given unknowingly or knowingly, situations mite get worse.
i have never refrained from even whacking up such people depending on the intensity and closure of the situation. this may not be the solution but it has happened when the same thing occurred with my friend when we were walking together.

Hey Ashlesha....
Hmmm i would say, looking at the scenario we have to be very very careful. Responding to the comments is obviously a wonderful thing to do but it can have its own negative impact.
Sometimes the person can physically attack and if you are alone, no matter what, the assault can be very very dangerous....So when we are responding to there gestures make sure you are surrounded with people.
otherwise carrying a pepperspray is always a good idea....and i would salute all those woman who at any point of time would stand up and fight for their dignity and respect.
regards,
ArchnA

I believe that in these situations that reacting in a physical nature - like hitting or using things like "Pepper spray" are not the appropriate response. I also don't believe that you should respond with the same language or vitriole that the person has said - don't fight fire with fire.
It is important that males in an office environment are accepting of women as equals. A sexual harrassment policy, bullying policy and other such guidelines are important to put in place so that any such comments can be dealt with in a fair and equitable manner and that employees are made to be aware that such derogatory comments and behaviours will not be tolerated in the work place.
Managers need to support the policies and take complaints seriously to ensure that all staff are treated fairly and with respect and dignity. If you are ever physically attacked in an office environment - I believe that the attacker should be instant dismissed and also involve the police.

Hello.............
The best and greatest way to tackle this situation is
catch the teaser redhandedly when he is teasing and hit him hard with
your chappal in front of everyone.......
This is the best idea...................

Hello everyone .............
I think some ladies are ignored because she never fights and some peoples says are dogs are barking. so that is why some ladies are ignored.

Thanks Moderator... I agree with u
Chufel,
I oppose to this statement - I also don't believe that you should respond with the same language or vitriole that the person has said - don't fight fire with fire.
This is not fighting fire with fire but stopping the fire from spreading.....
Bcz of many such ignored factors, the male dominated soc. still has the guts to act in this manner. And the situation i am tlaking abt is not office harrassment but the roadside remarks that are received. Again for workplace issues, there are different ways of dealing with them........
