  1. 1. ENSURING SAFETY & EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN
  2. 2. GIRLS DON’T NEED CHARITY BUT JUSTICE
  3. 3. Gender Discrimination • In India, discriminatory attitudes towards men and women have existed for generations and affect the lives of both genders. • Although the constitution of India has granted men and women equal rights, gender disparity still remains .
  4. 4. Phases of Gender Discrimination • Infancy to Childhood . The cultural construct of Indian society which reinforces gender bias against men and women, with varying degrees and variable contexts against the opposite sex, has led to the continuation of India’s strong preference for male children. Female infanticide, a sex- selective abortion, is adopted and strongly reflects the low status of Indian women. • Childhood to Adulthood and Education • Education is not widely attained by Indian women. Although literacy rates are increasing, female literacy rate lags behind the male literacy rate. • As per Literacy Rate Census of India 2001 and 2011 comparisons. Literacy for females stands at 65.46%, compared to 82.14% for males. An underlying factor for such low literacy rates are parents' perceptions that education for girls are a waste of resources as their daughters would eventually live with their husbands' families and they will not benefit directly from educational investment.
  5. 5. Adulthood and Onwards • Discrimination against women has contributed to gender wage differentials, with Indian women on average earning 64% of what their male counterparts earn for the same occupation and level of qualification.
  6. 6. VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN • Crime Against Women MEANING OF CRIME / VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN • “The Semantic meaning of „crime against women‟ is direct or indirect physical or mental cruelty to women. Crimes which are „directed specifically against women‟ and in which „only women are victims‟ are characterized as „Crime Against Women‟3. • It is equally important to clarify the concept of „Violence‟ against women. Violence is also known as abuse and include any sort of physical aggression or misbehave. When violence is committed at home it becomes domestic violence and involves family members such as children, spouse, parents or servants. Domestic violence may involve different means such as hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, throwing objects. In broad terms, it includes threats, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, controlling or domineering,
  7. 7. Proposed Solution • Rape (Section 376 IPC) (incidence 24,206 , Rate:2.0) • Under this brutal crime, as a citizen of India ,I suggest the culprits behind the rape should be punished brutally to the extent of how much the victim has suffered. Though India is a Democratic country and not a monarchy where the culprits are not punished in front of the public and are humiliated but this is the reason these demons or monsters are still roaming around freely and committing the crime. There should be fast track courts should be there. Security devices,gps settings should be included ,physical training for school students. For molesting 2 years and for rape 14 years is not a big punishment.
  8. 8. Continue… • Domestic violence • Awareness to women should be given,they should not suffer,they need to raise their voice against men.If they need divorce from ttheir husbands,they should be supported thoroughly. • Child MARRIAGE • Girl Children must be supported for their education and people who force them to marriage must be put in prison and should not be provided bail also. • Dowry • It should not be taken.Whoever takes it should be fined heavily and put in prison for atleast 3 years.
