No, only a woman can file a sexual harrassment case. But what you can do is give a written complaint at the police station and communicate mails/letters to her which later on can be used as evidence. If its an office issue, make sure to contact your HR and let them know

Per say there are no sections in ipc to support your claim but you have a few judgments in your favour and other remedies to get you justice against a woman in court. First step would be to file a police complaint
