Position of women in India: A special reference to domestic violence act
Dr. Saroj Saini
We are daily listening to news, reading newspaper or magazine; we go through incidents and accidents with women in India. The truth is that in the modern India, the woman has always been a second grade citizen, no matter what its esteemed leaders have said or done. Women are always considered as a physically and emotionally weaker than the males, whereas at present women have proved themselves in almost every field of life affirming that they are no less than men due to their hard work whether at home or at working places. Behind closed doors of homes all across our country, women are being tortured, beaten and killed. It is happening in rural areas, towns, cities and in metropolitans as well. The problems such as dowry, domestic violence, sex selective abortion, female infanticide are still prevalent. Now the time has come when effective and preventive measures need to be taken to ensure that women are empowered in India. To fight the evil of domestic violence the battle has to be twofold, at one level women needs to fight to unshackle the rigid norms of patriarchy and on the other hand women also need to balance and smartly deal with the problems of the family discords.
