"If a woman suffers eve-teasing, she should retaliate," Pawar said, addressing a conference of the women's wing of NCP.

Stressing that women should venture in all fields, he said, "Women should come forward to take responsibility".

In other countries, women shoulder responsibility at par with men in every field, he said.
