Women all around the world are sexually harassed at some point in their lives, whether at home, in the marketplace, in the company of family and friends, in schools and educational institutions, or at work. Women become easy targets for sexual assault and are often unable to speak up owing to societal pressure on the fear of defamation. A culture and tradition of Patriarchy in Indian society can be seen as a major factor and cause for this societal evil. Women now have started voicing their concerns protesting against these exploitations and fighting for their rights. This shift in attitude, especially with the implementation of some punitive punishments and women's hotlines, might be considered as a positive step toward protecting and maintaining female integrity. This paper exclusively tries to brings out different stages of exploitations women are subjected to throughout their life and highlight the various forms of sexual harassment and assault that have now become common place. The paper then explores various factors that have contributed to this issue and delves into patriarchy as a major underlying factor, and continues on to discuss various legal and remedial measures which could significantly reduce these types of exploitations
