Woman pilot files harassment complaint: LHC asks PIA to submit reply

From the Brecorder.com (Pakistan's Premier Financial Daily): Woman pilot files harassment complaint: LHC asks PIA to submit reply
The Lahore High Court here on Wednesday sought a reply from the administration of Pakistan International Airlines in a petition filed against alleged sexual harassment the women pilots face in the national carrier. The petitioner, Captain Riffat Haye, alleged that officials caused sexual harassment to women pilots during flights or in offices.

And if their demands are not met they create hurdles towards their promotions. She claimed that she had also submitted a complaint with PIA women development standing committee but no action was taken. She prayed that action should be taken against those found guilty under the law against women harassment.
