Girls should know how to draw line..JNU’s circular on sexual harassment triggers row

New Delhi, 28/12: Amid the rise in a number of sexual harassment complaints from the university, Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) took the initiative to organise sexual harassment counselling sessions. However, JNU’s internal complaints committee’s circular (ICC) on the matter was found to be ‘misogynistic’ by many.


The circular from ICC says that girls are “supposed to know how to draw a tangible line between them and their male friends”. 


ICC has uploaded the circular on the varsity’s website saying that it will organise a counselling session on sexual harassment on January 17. It also said that such sessions will be organised on a monthly basis.


Under the subhead “why is the counselling session required,” the circular said that it will make students aware of what consists of sexual harassment.
