Abstract / Summary
Sexual harassment has been a major issue in all fields of life, similarly, the national and international level athletes also faced it on their way to the glory. The capstone project focused on exploring the state of sexual harassment in the field of sports in Pakistan, at the school, university, national and international level. During the investigative report, it was revealed that sexual harassment was much more common in sports than anyone had imagined. Moreover, the harassment was not always by male coaches or counterparts against female athletes. Instead, the females were being harassed by the same gender, while men were also exploiting their subordinates and even under-aged children. Further, the legal aspect of sexual harassment has also been explored in the report, the sections applied on it, the punishment for the offenders and everything around.
