Workplace Woes #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z
No one said anything. Maybe there was nothing to say.
No one even cringed. Maybe it was routine.
I had always thought that it wouldn’t happen to me.
And if it did, I’d scream. I’d shriek and certainly raise hell.
But when it really happened, I was too scared. Too humiliated. Too embarrassed. Too silent.
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Crime Stories in 55 Words.
Today’s story, W is for Workplace Harassment…

This is the harsh truth, as much as we may deny it! Love this post, Shilpa!

Oh how I can relate to it for its happened to me too; its a tough thing as a fresher to even acknowledge that it happened!! Its a sickening part of the corporate life – men prey on junior women employees with impunity; almost as if its their birthright!!

What happened? You were fired for no reason? Take it easy.

This is so true, Shilpa. And I can relate to it a lot. In my head, I feel I would do this, I would do that… but when the situation actually comes, I hide under covers and look reasons to avoid the situation!

wow, even though I’m not a working woman I know I can feel every word of it!

that seems to be how we all feel, sometimes you just can’t go against your boss, sad but true…
have a lovely day.

Sometimes the voice screaming inside is unable to come outside rt?

Ambiguous, leaving a lot of room for interpretation of what went wrong and what the ‘worst case scenario’ was that did occur 🙂

Oh dear…sad! how many employees silently suffer like this but are unable to speak out.

That feeling of embarrassment can be over powering. Strange how the perpetrators don’t feel anything while it’s the victim that feels embarrassed.

And too ashamed?

The women always suffer in silence and are embarrassed and ashamed too for no fault of theirs.

Harsh reality! I don;t get why women suffer in silence though, especially when something like this happens in a workplace!

Such a sad one. Being in HR – I need to say that out loud that employees should report and never ever tolerate. Even the government has laws that protect – POSH is what it is called. Prevention of Sexual Harassment.
