Lawyers with over 38 years of standing and thousands of rightly resolved matters. START CONSULTING:
It has rightly been expressed by a progressive women’s rights Lawyer and 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”.
– Michelle Obama.
The acts of violence or cruelty against women does not only harm the victim but also the sentiments and sanctity of an entire society. It uproots the moral framework of a nation. Unfortunately, in the evil patriarchal societies which still exist, thrives a notional-mentality that considers women as weaker gender or an object. The flawed imposition of men’s superiority over women, by way of conditioning, serves as an underlying cause of such acts of violence against women. Our women’s rights advocates in Dehradun fight for the protection and restoration of women’s rights. The law in India condemns these acts by calling them out as criminal offenses under two heads – public and private domain.
Offenses against women in the public domain are the acts that outrage the modesty of a woman outside her home and cover offenses such as:
Sexual abuse, Rape, molestation, Acid Attack, honor killing, stalking, eve-teasing, sexual harassment at workplace, unequal treatment, trafficking, forced prostitution, child marriage, female infanticide, forced labor, trafficking, sexual abuse etc.
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 rightly noted;
“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.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
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 private as well as public domain. Our best lawyers who fight Crime Against Women provide a procedural platform to the victims to use these safeguards. The safeguards are available under the IPC, the CrPC, and, Special Specific Enactments that Aim at checking out the menace of Dowry and Domestic Violence.
It cannot be ruled out that the legislation for the protection of women is gender biased. While safeguarding the rights of women, the rights of men often get violated. In a number of cases, the whole family along with the husband has suffered false implication by blatant MISUSE of legislation meant for the welfare of women. Therefore, it is a matter of careful observation and scrutiny of the lawyers as well as the investigating/ protection officers working in the sector to ensure that the victim is genuinely identified with a bonafide.
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 women’s rights advocates in Dehradun provide legal aid and services to protect and promote the rights of women, while at the same time, we take essential and necessary measures to prevent innocent people from false, frivolous, and fictitious litigation. The objective of the law practice of our women’s rights lawyers in Dehradun is to help secure a just and fair society.
**We deject un-ethical and immoral practices, and reserve our rights of extending legal services only to a select clientele which exhibits civility, faith in law, sound moral footing, and good conscience. Our legal counsels defend the ones who have falsely been implicated, and prosecute for those who have actually been victimized – in either case, our counsels reserve their right of exercising discretion in accepting or rejecting a brief/ lawsuit.
