Workplace Harassment Law 2010 and Pakistan Penal Code Section 509: Enabling workplace a better place for women
Civil Society Representatives and Goverment Officials join hands for synchronizing their efforts for the "harassment at workplace law" implementation through a rigorous awareness campaign. Workplace Harassment Law 2010 and Pakistan Penal Code Section 509 are aimed to enable a better workplace for women. This law has been passed by the effort of Civil Society organisations working for ten years, and now a continuous struggle is going on to enforce them through Government efforts since 2010. The Council for Participatory Development is working along with all stakeholders to involve people from different sectors in a campaign through seminars and social media posting.
