As we are celebrating International Women's Day this year and pledging for parity, it is important that we ensure a better working place for women.
According to a research by International Labor Organization and Human Resource Development Council, 27% women could not pay attention to work, 22.7% women remain absent at work, 15.8% women become ineffective at their work due to sexual harassment at work.
