Violence against women and girl child

Author(s)
Dr. Neeta Varshney
Abstract
Our constitution of 1950 gave fundamental rights and equality to women. As a result of the fight over a century for their basic rights, Articles 14, 15, 16 guarantee such fundamental rights. But even now in 2003 women and girl child are facing violence. Despite of the status of women in books, if we look outside, dowry death, rape cases and atrocity against women show a different picture of circumstances and long gap between theory and practice. Rights of women and girl child are being violated. Female foeticide, female infanticide, child marriage, child abuse and child prostitution are still in practice. Violence against women, both physically and mentally is present at domestic or societal levels and includes those arising from customs, tradition or accepted practice. These include sexual harassment at work place and customs like dowry.
