Section 354 deals with assault or force on a woman with the intent to outrage her modesty, basically it's done touching the women
while Section 354A deals with sexual harassment which is done by making unwelcome sexual advances, or requests for sexual favors, or any other conduct of a sexual nature, which creates an intimidating or offensive environment for the woman.
