Often after her sessions against sexual harassment in offices, a pushback Smita C Kapoor receives from some employers is that they will stop hiring women. “It is the most irritating pushback I receive from men. I explain that women form almost 50 per cent of the population and there is no such place for discrimination against them. They add value and growth to the economy that is not replaceable,” she says. Kapoor, who earlier worked as an HR professional in a multinational company till 2013, began her own company, KelpHR, in the same year when The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013, was enacted.
