Hold unbiased probe into sexual harassment cases: Editors Guild tells media organisations

Wednesday, October 10, 2018

New Delhi: With fresh cases of sexual harassment coming to light as part of the #MeToo movement, the Editors Guild of India Tuesday came out in strong support of the women journalists who were victims of sexual predation and asked media organisations to hold unbiased inquiries into all such cases.

The Guild, in a statement, said anybody found guilty of sexual harassment or assault should be punished as provided in the law and asserted that a fair, just and safe working environment is essential if press freedoms are to flourish in the country.

Unequivocally condemning sexual predation, the Guild lauded the women journalists who have showed courage to bring the critical issues in public debate.

It also expressed concern and dismay over the incidence of alleged sexual harassment and assault on women journalists.

"It is worse when the perpetrators also happen to be enjoying senior or supervisory positions in the profession," the Guild said.
