When life gives you something that makes you feel afraid, that’s when life gives you the chance to be brave. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, there were 39 crimes against women in India reported on an hourly rate till 2016. Although there are many laws and women empowerment programs running, the conditions are becoming worse persistently. Our women need to be more aware in such circumstances and need to seek the best possible legal recourse to stop crime against women.
Despite being half of the world population, women still are considered to be a minority group. There are a considerable number of cases of crime against women on a daily basis. Held back from participating in many activities on account of patriarchy and discrimination, it was rightly expressed by Michelle Obama, the former First Lady of the United States,
“No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens“.
According to the National Crime Records Bureau survey of 2016, there were reported 3,38,954 criminal offences against women. And among them, 414 were reported in Chandigarh. Chandigarh is not only ranking at the top as the cleanest city in India but is also ranking number 2 in terms of crime against women and children in all the 7 Union Territories.

The acts of misconduct, violence, discrimination or cruelty against women harm not only the victim; they also hurt the sentiments and sanctity of the society. In evil patriarchal societies still prevalent in India, women are considered to be a weaker gender. The acceptance of men’s superiority over women is usually the underlying reason for the acts of violence against women. In Indian law, these acts of violence or cruelty against women are recognized as offenses and are widely discussed under two heads – public domain and private domain.
Offenses against women in the public domain are acts that outrage the modesty of a woman outside her home. Women are victims of offenses such as sexual abuse, molestation, acid attacks, honor killing, stalking, eve-teasing, sexual harassment at workplace, unequal treatment, trafficking, and forced prostitution. Even a girl child is not safe from evils such as child marriage, female infanticide, forced labor, trafficking, sexual abuse, etc. This offense come under public domain and are discussed accordingly.
The offenses inside the four walls of a house are considered to be violence against women in the private domain. First Chairperson of The UN Commission on Human Rights, Eleanor Roosevelt said;
“Where, after all, do universal rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere.”
Women are often victims of physical, mental, emotional and verbal abuse even inside the four walls of their house. Most women face demands for dowry, discrimination, and harassment every day.
The laws have come a long way in protecting the rights of women in the private as well as public domain. Our well-versed lawyers in Chandigarh aim to provide a procedural platform for these safeguards. It is notable to mention that the legislation for the protection of women is gender-biased. While safeguarding the rights of women, the rights of men are often violated. It has been seen in a number of cases that the entire family along with the husband is falsely implicated by blatant misuse of legislation meant for the welfare of women. So a seasoned and profoundly acknowledged lawyer for women’s rights can help you for that matter quite well.
Our criminal lawyers in Chandigarh will walk so many extra miles to help you get justice. But make sure you are not misusing the law for personal grudges. False allegations against someone ruin their entire lives with a lot of ignominies. There is an end number of false crimes against women cases where such false allegations have destroyed men’s lives and their careers too. Some spent half of their life in jail and got acquitted after decades.
But you have to be aware of the fact that false accusations might cost you too. The criminal justice system is accountable for the abuse of law taking place, especially in welfare legislation like Section 498-A IPC, anti-dowry laws, Domestic Violence Act, etc. Our reputed lawyers in Chandigarh care for every citizen and therefore ensure that we are being a means of justice in true manners. Undoubtedly, we provide legal aid and services to protect and promote the rights of women, while at the same time, they must at all costs prevent innocent people from frivolous litigation and help secure a just and fair society.

She has 39+ years of experience (Chandigarh District Court, High Court, Supreme Court) in the field and is one of the most renowned and successful female lawyers. Our senior lawyers in Chandigarh High Court investigate the whole matter deeply. Because these matters need great prudence whether it is concerned to the victim itself or the guilty.
