In today’s world often news is coming about women harassment at workplace. Women are very frequently complaining about balancing their work life and family life. Sometimes family life disturbs work life and vice versa. While the second is happening, women suffer a lot, which is reflected in their personal and family life. Needless to say one of the prominent reasons of this disturbance is Work Place Harassment, which often takes dangerous form as women most of the time can’t express rather; rather punish themselves which directly-indirectly hampers Work Life Balance (WLB). This paper aims to focus the opinions of married women working in Kolkata based public sector insurances regarding Work Place Harassment and how it affects their WLB.
