through public sector exams.
These portals will be in direct interaction
with public official who are a part of law
making and enactment process.
The system would give a chance to the
youth to contribute their views on
governmental law process.
Existing system simply provides women a
platform to lodge complaints, so here we
provide a portal where their identity is

feature,but they are given freedom to
discuss their everyday problems.

Risks and Challenges To The System
• Providing advertising space for
education oriented business
on portals would enhance
women empowerment along
with revenue generation.
• Awareness campaigns.
• Providing benefits to
government volunteers so as
they work efficiently.
•Right placing of public opinions.
•Government finds the fact viable to
promote more females on women
•Unbiased Interaction of youth and
public law making officials.
•Managing group of women
volunteers required for training in
each rural area.
No high infrastructure required, because we are basically aiming
at a common interaction platform.
Transparency insurance which aims at better enactment of laws
for women which are existing but not well implemented.
Portal systems for discussing problems among women keeping
their identity concealed is far effective and easy than a manual
Mass involvement is assured which will result in formation of
pragmatic laws adhering to real world problems for women.
Youth which is the “so called” driving force is given a chance to
speak out for law making of such serious issues.
Study of inadequacy of existing solutions to the
Solutions which government has already
been implementing and are a failure to
solve the problem:
Providing female reservations.
Providing awareness camps for women.
Providing special education and health
Providing complaint lodging mechanisms
for women, and many more….
Simply educating women as to how they
should secure themselves, is inept. Rather
the law governance should be strong
enough so that problem creators think
before committing crimes. Countries like
USA, provide a safe society for women
with a strong law mechanism. Hence, the
proposed solution may prove efficient.
