ABSTRACT

Violence against women is very important and contemporary issue of discussion in India. In this regard, the policies of Indian government always have tried to overcome and solve the problem of violence against women by providing them valuable justice. But even after providing so many legislations and constitutional rights in favor of women by Indian government, still, women of India have faced many types of violence such as gang rape, spousal rape (marital rape) and sexual harassment especially. The present study is focused on the violence against women occurring in Indian society. The study reveals that very few women in India have approached to the help of police force in emergency situations, so that, there is a great need of conducting various awareness programs among women and Indian society about various preventive and remedial measures of violence against women. There must be to set up a women helpline team which serves as a quick redressal mechanism for protection of women against this mercy less crime.
