Bangladesh is a developing country. Women possess a considerable portion of our total population. So development of our country largely depends upon women. If they lag behind, our country will obviously stumbles in becoming a developed one. But it is evident that women are in most vulnerable situation because of many problems of which sexual harassment is mentionable most. The impact of sexual harassment is huge in both individual and national life. Victimized students do not only get psychologically troubled, but also feel continuously insecure. They develop a sense of distrust and hatred towards men. In fact, within the patriarchal social fabric, sexual harassment is a weapon to weaken, hurt or force women to consign to domestic affairs. It restricts women's mobility in the public sphere, which contributes to their diminishing participation in outdoor activities. There is increasing realization that sexual harassment is a huge threat to women's empowerment. Altogether, though apparently invisible, the cost of sexual harassment in our national and individual life is huge. However, in Bangladesh, there is no strong law to prevent sexual harassment.
