From early centuries till today the plight of women is not likely to change. Women are suffering from discrimination, oppression, exploitation, degradation, aggression and humiliation. A vital position and venerable place were occupies by Indian women in the society. Women were seen as the mother, the creator, and one who gives life and worshipped as a Goddess and also their glorification was rather mythical. India being a patriarchal society, women found to be suppressed and subjugated. Male violence against women is worldwide phenomenon. In every sphere of life the cause of lack of participation by women is fear of violence.
There are various forms of crimes against women. These include domestic violence, female feticides, dowry death, eve-teasing, molestation, sexual harassment, abuse at work place, honour killing, rape etc. The meaning of the term violence is striking someone physically causing injury and atrocities on women have their roots to some extent, in their weaker social position
