The Indian bureaucracy provides the framework that ensures the successful running of a democratic country, continuing the heritage of the Indian Civil Service during British colonial rule. However, patriarchy has continued to serve as the norm in these institutions, with the sexual harassment of bureaucrats representing a particular challenge. Sexual harassment in the workplace is a hard reality, but systematic studies of this phenomenon are few and far between. In this regard, bureaucracy is an area which needs particular academic analysis. This book addresses this research gap and studies the relevance of socio-economic factors leading to sexual harassment in the Indian bureaucracy in Kolkata, Delhi and Bengaluru. It also explores the levels and forms of this harassment, the gender and position of the harasser, and the level of filing complaints by the victims. Moreover, the reasons behind the silence of the victims regarding filing complaints are also analysed. As such, it is a revealing and illuminating analysis of the hitherto unexplored area of the dynamics of one facet of gender relationships in the Indian bureaucracy.

The book will be useful to scholars in the fields of anthropology, law, sociology, economics, social work, political science, gender studies, and development studies, as well as other social sciences.
