Sexual harassment is a pervasive problem throughout the world. Whether its cat calling, lewd staring, inappropriate comments, unwanted touching or harassment in the workplace, there are few parts of the world where sexual harassment is not a serious problem. India is no exception to this. Throughout the country, sexual harassment remains a threat to women�s physical safety and personal well-being. In an attempt to learn more about the problem, Project Monma conducted a survey with both Indian women and foreign women who have been to India. We asked women about the different types of sexual harassment that they had experienced where they experienced it and who were the most common perpetrators. We conducted the survey in order to raise awareness about the endemic levels of harassment facing women in India and to draw attention to the severity of it. Much needs to be done to bring sexual harassment to an end in India and continued research can help with this. ��
