Crimes Against Women: The Diabolic Chapter Of India

Tanvi Trivedi, Department of Law, Prestige Institute of Management and Research, Indore


Although the women's status in India has improved slightly but not eradicated completely. Crimes against women can take any form of abuse whether it is physical abuse, financial abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, spiritual abuse, technological abuse or any other such form of abuses which takes place due to the male dominating society in India. Such violence and abuses are often carried out either by the women's family members or by strangers wherein they use their controlling behaviors to torture and indulge fear in their minds which results in victims suffering in silence and getting little or no public awareness of their plight. In spite of having various legislative and judicial initiatives, crimes against women have been considered as a legitimate human rights violation. There are various NGOs and women groups who are working and fighting for the rights of the women but this will remain deficient until the reforms are being brought in the thought-process of the people living in this society.
