Princy Raavee & Priya Awasthi, Assistant Professor, Chhatrapati Shahu Ji Maharaj University, Kanpur


The Constitution of India has incorporated the principle of equality in the Preamble, Fundamental Rights, Fundamental Duties and directive principles. The constitution of India not only grants equality to women but also empowers the state to make specials laws in the favour of women and children. To uphold the constitutional mandate, the state has enacted various legislative measures intended to ensure equal rights, remove discrimination, and protect women from all kinds of violence and harassment against women.
