Eve teasing Controversy

'Eve teasing' and 'sexual harassment' are very close terminology. But Rights activists yesterday called for using the term "sexual harassment" to describe bullying of young women saying the words "eve teasing" were too lenient a term to describe a nasty crime the perpetrators of it do.

"In no way it (bullying) should be seen as a minor offense, which is meant by the use of term 'eve teasing' . . . it is actually sexual harassment and it's perpetrators must face severe legal actions," civil society activist and economist Professor Anu Mohammad told a discussion.
