VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

Violence against women is also called as
Gender based violence. Violence against women and girls is one of the human
rights violence. Violence against women is increasing day by day due to the
modern techonology. Women in the Indian society
have always been considered as the things of enjoyment from the ancient time.
They have been victims of the humiliation, exploitation and torture by the men
from the time of social organization and family life. In India women are
treated as a Goddess of Shakthi. When compared to olden days  now women are treated as well respected in our
society. They are shining in all aspects of the day today life. But still in
some extent male domination is arising due to this women are declining in their
success. Now in the modern technology improvement women are equal to men in all
sorts of life but still they are ill-treated by male dominating society. Violence
against women can fit into several broad categories. These include violence
carried out by “individuals” as well as “states”. Some of
the forms of violence perpetrated by individuals are: rape, domestic
violence, sexual
harassment, reproductive coercion, female infanticide, prenatal sex selection, obstetric
violence, and mob violence; as well as harmful customary or
traditional practices such as honor
killings, dowry violence, female genital mutilation, marriage by abduction and forced
marriage. Some forms of violence are perpetrated or condoned by the
state such as war rape; sexual
violence and sexual
slavery during conflict; forced sterilization; forced
abortion; violence by the police and authoritative personnel; stoning and flogging.
Many forms of VAW, such as trafficking in women and forced prostitution are often perpetrated
by organized criminal networks.2

In my research study i am going to
discuss violence against women with the help of leading case laws of Supreme Court.
