The Federation of City Sabhas in Chennai has set up a committee – Internal Complaints Committee – to receive complaints of sexual harassment which will then be processed as per law.
The ICC gas Uma Ramanathan, advocate, Sudha Ragunathan, senior vocalist, Usha Dinesh, a corporate affairs expert, B. Vivekanand, medical expert and Dr R Thara, specialist in mental illnesses. Senior advocate Mohan Parasaran is advisor.
Complaints can be sent to the executive officer – firstname.lastname@example.org
This move follows a series of complaints against some artistes who have been accused of sexual harassment. The Music Academy has chosen to drop seven senior artistes from its December Season concerts/lectures schedule because they have been ‘called out’.
