1 . Read the passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/ phrases are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions

In the past, the few women professionals who dotted our corporate landscape suffered in silence, not willing to complain about discrimination or harassment for fear of losing their jobs. Today, there is strength in numbers and women are willing to raise issues of gender discrimination and sexual harassment publicly. Although women have greater confidence, financial independence, strong peer groups and a deeper understanding of their rights, they are still reluctant to expose issues related to sexual harassment and to take their tormentors down the legal path of justice. There exists, unfortunately, a huge psychological challenge that women, and society as a whole, need to address. This relates to behavioral attitudes and codes of conduct in the workplace.

It was in 1997 that a women's rights group called Vishaka filed a PIL in the Supreme Court in response to a humiliating legal battle fought by a rape victim in Rajasthan, who did not get justice and was shamed and ostracised by her community instead. Consequently, the Supreme Court's Vishaka judgment laid down guidelines for employers to deal with complaints of sexual harassment/assault at the workplace, which included the formation of an independent redressal committee.

If one looks at the statistics of reported rape cases, it is obvious that women have been denied justice. Between 2009 and 2012, over one lakh cases of rape and molestation were registered, but, sadly, the convictions declined from 44 per cent in 1973 to 24 per cent in 2012.

Against this backdrop, the alleged sexual assault case involving the former editor-in-chief of Tehelka, Tarun Tejpal, has yet again revealed, the ugly truth of how women are victimised in their workplaces. Worse still, Tejpal initially confessed to misconduct, and then retracted once he realised the gravity of the case. The victim, on the other hand, has courageously steered the matter on a legal course and is now braving the onslaught of allegations and tirades from Tejpal's camp. 'Why did you ride the elevator with Tejpal for a second time?' is one such ridiculous question. Inane comments such as these, about such serious matters, are what undermine the status of women in our society. Another outrageous comment came from a UP politician who now questions the employability of women. Such irresponsible utterances must be condemned if we are ever to build an equitable and modern society. The anger and outrage expressed this time has reached a critical decibel level and needs to be channelled into positive change. We cannot allow our attention span to be so short. We must act swiftly and surely to ensure that the Vishaka guidelines are implemented by every organisation. Women must be empowered and provided a safe working environ ent.
