As per the Sexual harassment of Women at Workplace Act 2013, the state has to notify and form district level committees which will have the responsibility for the prevention prohibition and redressal of sexual harassment complaints from women in particular from non-formal work structures. These include women workers in the informal economy, agricultural workers, home based workers and domestic workers.

Martha Farrell Foundation since its inception is committed to supporting the institution and the strengthening of such local committees through capacity building trainings and third party support. This year the Foundation has committed to continuing to support the Local Committee in the district of South East Delhi. The Foundation conducted a training of committee member and the nodal officers nominated by the District Magistrate last week.

Following the same, on May 11, 2018 the committee conducted a review meeting to discuss its future course of action in the Martha Farrell Foundation office.
