Crime Against Women

  • 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 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”.

    Crime against women is a crime against State.

    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 the 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.

    • PUBLIC DOMAIN

    Offenses against women in 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. These offense come under public domain and are discussed accordingly.

    • PRIVATE DOMAIN

    The offenses inside the four walls of a house are considered to be violence against women in 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 constitutional and legislative safeguards in India

    The laws have come a long way in protecting the rights of women in private as well as public domain. The best lawyers in Chandigarh aim to provide a procedural platform to these safeguards. It is notable to mention that the legislation for the protection of women are 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 entire family along with the husband is falsely implicated by blatant misuse of legislation meant for the welfare of women.

    Important to keep a check on misuse of laws.

    The criminal justice system is accountable for the abuse of law taking place especially in welfare legislations like Section 498-A IPC, anti-dowry laws, Domestic Violence Act etc. The best Lawyers in Chandigarh undoubtedly provide legal aid and services to protect and promote the rights of women, while at the same time, they must at all cost prevent innocent people from frivolous litigation and help secure a just and fair society.
