Crimes against women are reported every two minutes. Women are victimized from womb to tomb. Women are constantly subjected to crimes like female foeticide, child marriage, dowry harassment, domestic violence, acid attack, sexual offences, honour killing, prostitution, trafficking, cybercrimes etc. These disturbing trends of crime against women have spurred worldwide action. Considering the vulnerable nature of women, Article 15(3) was incorporated in the Constitution, which facilitated the enactment of gender based laws. In furtherance of this,time and again many laws are enacted to curb crimes against women and assure them a safe environment to live their life with dignity. However, the core concern is about the implementation of these laws.
The objectives of the conference are:
To view the laws existing in India to curb crimes against women.
To address the issues related to challenges faced during investigation, prosecution and trial of crimes against women.
To address the issues regarding rehabilitation of victims of crime
