The international momentum for promotion, protection of Women’s rights coupled with Gender equality initiatives has percolated to national level mandating effective redress of violations of human rights. Within the frame work of the Indian democratic polity, the laws, development policies and plans have aimed towards
advancement of women rights and gender equality. Hence, the need to accentuate women’s rights emanates from the inter-linkages between Gender inequality and human development wherein as per the Global Gender Gap Report 2021 India ranks 140th out of 1506 countries in-spite of pro-women laws and constitutional tenets of affirmative action alternatively positive discrimination in favour of women.
The Constitution of India embodies the principle of gender equality, in the Preamble, Fundamental duties and the Directive Principles. However, women continue to face discrimination, harassment consequentially, violation of their rights. The need of the hour is to develop appropriate strategies to eliminate any form of discriminationagainst women so that women can participate equally in all walks of life.
