India Today - - UPFRONT -

The 2013 sex­ual ha­rass­ment law, of­fi­cially Sex­ual Ha­rass­ment of Women at Work­place (Pre­ven­tion, Pro­hi­bi­tion and Re­dres­sal) Act, be­ing the most com­monly cited piece of leg­is­la­tion of late, needed an ab­bre­vi­a­tion that would roll eas­ily off the tongue. Ne­ces­sity be­ing a wor­thy pro­gen­i­tor, a handy acro­nym has been found—don’t be fooled, guys, when you hear the word POSH! And don’t imag­ine it’s the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil ei­ther when you hear ICC— chances are they mean In­ter­nal Com­plaints Com­mit­tee.
