IWPC PRESS STATEMENT
English
Indian Women's Press Corps statement on sexual harassment in the Indian media

The Indian Women's Press Corps expresses deep concern over the spate of instances of sexual harassment faced by women journalists across the media. The IWPC extends its support to all the women journalists and women employees in the media who have faced sexual harassment by their co-workers and superiors and have had the courage to speak out.

The fact that many of the complaints have gone unheard despite being brought to the notice of the appropriate authorities is disturbing and a matter of grave concern. It is also reflective of a systemic malaise where despite the enactment of the Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace (Prevention,Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013, the committees required to address these complaints and grievances are either not properly constituted or simply do not exist.

It may be pointed out that all media organisations have a legal obligation to set up Internal Complaints Committees in every branch office and disseminate information about what constitutes sexual harassment as well as the venues to seek redress. The phenomenon of many women journalists speaking out through the social media has arisen precisely because of either the absence or the abject failure of robust institutional grievance redress mechanisms that ought to have been readily available to the complainants in the first place. The emphasis, within the Act, is on prevention rather than punitive action, therefore the measures for such prevention have to be in place as a matter of conscious organizational policy. There ought to be zero tolerance for any form of inappropriate behaviour towards women employees. More fundamentally, the regular sensitisation of all employees towards what constitutes "welcome" and "unwelcome behaviour" is a prerequisite for a safe and secure work environment.

Every woman employee has the right to work in an atmosphere free from any kind of harassment and hostility and employers have a responsibility to ensure the safety and security of women employees in particular. It has been recognised that such harassment has health, economic and social consequences apart from affecting the productivity of the aggrieved employee at the workplace.

Given the pervasiveness of sexual harassment in the media, we demand that employers set up the institutional mechanisms mandated under the law so that every woman employee in every media organisation has recourse to redress as and when the occasion arises. We also urge women employees to take recourse to the system of redress and the processes involved in order that their grievance is addressed by the appropriate forum.

Sincerely yours,

T.K.Rajalakshmi (President)

Ravinder Bawa (General Secretary)

FTII's film appreciation course for IWPC members
फिल्म एंड टेलीविजडन इमस्टीट्यूट, पुणे ने विमन प्रेस कोर्प के लिए दो दिवसीय फिल्म एप्रीसिएशन कोर्स का आयोजन किया जिसमें 30 के करीब महिला पत्रकारों ने भाग लिया। कार्यक्रम का उद्देश्य पत्रकारों को फिल्म निर्माण से जुड़ी बारीकियों और विभिन्न आयामों पर आनेवाली चुनौतियों से रू-ब-रू कराना था ताकि फिल्म रिव्यू करते समय सटीक और निष्पक्ष विवेचना कर सकें और यही इस वर्कशाप की यूएसपी भी थी। इसे और बखूबी समझाने के लिए FTII अपने खज़ाने से ऐसी- ऐसी पुरानी फिल्मों के अनमोल मोती चुनकर लाया था जो आज ढूंढ़ने से भी न मिलें । इनमें दादासाहेब फाल्के की बनाई पहली मूक फिन्म 'राजा हरीशचंद्र' शामिल थी और साथ ही देखने को मिली सुप्रसिद्ध मराठी फिल्म ' हरीशचंद्राचे फैक्ट्री', जिसमें फिल्म निर्माण के दौरान दादासाहेब फाल्के के सामने आई कठिनाईयों का ज़िक्र था।सत्यजीत रे की 'टू', हालीवुड की 'हैप्पी एनीवर्सिरी', 'ए ट्रिप टू द मून' जैसी तमाम क्लासिक फिल्में सही मायनों में दिमाग के लिए भी एक विज़ुअल ट्रीट थीं।इस दौरान फिल्म 'अनारकली फ्राम आरा' की स्क्रीनिंग भी हुई जिस पर बात करने के लिए फिल्म के निर्माता, संदीप कपूर और निर्देशक, अविनाश दास मौजूद थे।पत्रकारिता से जुड़े अविनाश ने साझा किया कि अगर कहानी में दम है तो उस पर फिल्म बनानेवाला मिल ही जाता है। जलवायु परिवर्तन जैसे संवेदनशील मुद्दे पर डाक्यूमेंट्री बनानेवाली आकांक्षा जोशी ने भी अपनी फिल्म से जुड़े तमाम अनुभवों को साझा किया। दिल्ली में महिला पत्रकारों के लिए फिल्म एंड टेलीविजडन इमस्टीट्यूट, पुणे का यह पहला कोर्स था जिसे डायरेक्टर भूपेंद्र केंथोला ने कोर्स डायरेक्टर पंकज सक्सेना और मनीश भारद्वाज के साथ मिलकर फिल्म डिवीज़न आडिटोरियम में आयोजित किया।
अलविदा शांताजी
कला समीक्षक और पत्रकार शांता सरबजीत सिंह ने जीवन के कई रंगों को देखा। उन्होंने पत्रकारिता जगत में उस समय कदम रखा, जब गिनती की महिला पत्रकार काम कर रहीं थीं। उन्होंने अपनी लगन, मेहनत और जिजीविषा के बल पर अपनी पहचान न सिर्फ कला जगत में बनाई, बल्कि,
आम लोगों के बीच •ाी काफी लोकप्रिय रहीं। वह कई सामाजिक व सांस्कृतिक संस्थाओं से संबद्ध रहीं। वह वूमेन प्रेस कॉर्प की •ाी अध्यक्ष रहीं। उन्होंने संगीत नाटक अकादमी के उपाध्यक्ष पद को •ाी सुशो•िात किया। लेकिन, यह प्रकृति का नियम है कि इस संसार में सब कुछ नश्वर है। इंसान •ाी उसका एक हिस्सा है और इसी हिस्से का एक अंश शांता सरबजीत सिंह •ाी थीं। 2 अगस्त 2017 को उन्होेंने इस संसार को अलविदा कह दिया। शांता सरबजीत सिंह की स्मृति में इंडियन वूमेन प्रेस कॉर्प में श्रद्धांजलि स•ाा का आयोजन 9 सितंबर को किया गया। इस स•ाा में कथक नृत्यांगना शोवना नारायण, •ातरनाट्यम नृत्यांगना प्रति•ाा प्रहलाद, कुचिपुडी नर्तक राजा रेड्डी, ओडिशी नृत्यांगना कविता द्विवेदी, कला समीक्षक सुनील कोठारी, पत्रकार मृणाल पांडे, •ाारतीय सांस्कृतिक संबंध परिषद के पूर्व निदेशक सुरेश गोयल और कॉर्प के कई सदस्य उपस्थित थे। वरिष्ठ पत्रकार मृणाल पांडे ने हिंदुस्तान में उनके कॉलम लेखन के दिनों को याद किया। मृणाल पांडे ने अपने वक्तव्य में कहा कि वह समय से सब काम करती थीं। उनसे क•ाी किसी की तकरार नहीं होती थीं। वे एक सुलझी हुई शख्सियत थीं। अपने गहन अध्ययन और समझ से वह सब को जोड़ने वाली माला के धागे की तरह थी। पहली अध्यक्ष के तौर पर मृणाल जी ने बताया कि शांता जी के अथक प्रयासों की वजह से वूमेन प्रेस कॉर्प इतनी अच्छी संस्था बन कर उ•ार सका है। वह हमारे क्लब की धुरी थीं। उन्होंने कहा कि शांता जी की प्रेरणा और सुझावों से वूमेन प्रेस क्लब की परिकल्पना बनी। कथक नृत्यांगना शोवना नारायण ने अपने एक कार्यक्रम को याद करते हुए कहा कि मैंने एक बार सरबजीत जी की पेंटिग्स को आधार बना कर कोरियोग्राफी की थी। इसमें शांताजी ने बहुत सहयोग किया था। इस स•ाा को संबोधित करते हुए, कला समीक्षक सुनील कोठारी ने कहा कि मैं जब •ाी दिल्ली आता था, तब उनके घर पर ठहरता था। वह खुले मन की थीं। किसी के प्रति ईर्ष्या •ााव नहीं रखतीं थीं। श्रद्धांजलि स•ाा में शांताजी को याद करते हुए, कुचिपुडी नर्तक राजा रेड्डी ने कहा कि उन्होंने मुझे, मेरी पत्नी और बेटियों को हमेशा प्रोत्साहित किया। आईसीसीआर के पूर्व निदेशक सुरेश गोयल ने कहा कि जब कॉर्प का वार्षिक आयोजन होता था तब शांता जी बहुत मेहनत कर सबको साथ लेकर काम करने की कोशिश में जुट जाती थीं। उनके अनुशासन ,मेहनत और लगन से बहुत कुछ सीखने की प्रेरणा और मार्गदर्शन मिलता है। इस संदर्•ा में •ारतनाट्यम नृत्यांगना प्रति•ाा प्रहलाद ने कहा कि वह तो मेरी मां थीं। उन्होंने मेरा हर कदम पर साथ दिया। जबकि, ओडिशी नृत्यांगना कविता द्विवेदी ने कहा कि उन्होंने मेरे पिताजी व गुरू हरेकृष्ण बेहरा की बहुत मदद की। वह समय की बहुत पाबंद थीं। स•ाा के आरं•ा में इंडियन वूमेन प्रेस कॉर्प की अध्यक्ष शो•ाना जैन ने शांता सरबजीत सिंह को याद करते हुए, कहा कि शांताजी हमारे संस्थान की ऐसा आधार स्तं•ा थी जैसे मानव शरीर के लिए रीढ़ की हड्डी। वह हमेशा क्लब के हर सदस्य और हर कार्यक्रम में दिलचस्पी लेती थीं। उन्होंने कहा कि शांता जी ने एक सफर पूरा कर लिया है और आज हम उनके जीवन की नई यात्रा को मनाने के लिए एकत्रित हुए हैं। उपाध्यक्ष टी राजलक्ष्मी ने कहा कि शांता जी मुझसे उम्र में काफी बड़ी थीं। उनको मैं हमेशा शांता कहती थी। वह हमारे दोस्ताना संबंध से बहुत खुश रहती थीं। पत्रकार सुषमा रामचंद्रन ने कहा कि शांता जी चाहे किसी •ाी संस्थान से जुड़ी रही हो हर गतिविधि में पूरे उत्साह और जोश से •ााग लेतीं थीं। महासचिव अदिति टंडन ने उनसे अपनी पहली मुलाकात को याद किया। अदिति ने कहा कि मै शांताजी से मिलने डलहौजी गई थी। उस समय वहां बहुत ठंड थी। मुझे कंपकंपाते देखकर,उन्होंने एक शॉल लाकर खुद मुझे ओढ़ाया। मुझे उनकी वह संवेदनशीलता क•ाी नहीं •ाूलती। स•ाा के दौरान दिवंगत शांता सरबजीत सिंह के पुत्र करमजीत सिंह व पुत्रवधू और संस्थान में कार्यरत कर्मचारियों और कई सदस्यों ने •ाी उन्हें पुष्पांजलि अर्पित की। इस मौके पर शांता जी के लेखन की कुछ प्रतियों को •ाी दर्शाया गया था। तस्वीर पर चढ़ाए गए फूलों के बीच से मुस्कुराती शांता जी को देख कर लग रहा था मानो सबको को अपना सदा -सा प्यार दे रही हो।
