School of Law, Lingaya’s Vidyapeeth, Faridabad is conducting a conference on Crime Against Women on March 27-28.
Crimes against women are reported every two minutes. Women are victimized from womb to tomb. Women are constantly subjected to crimes like female foeticide, child marriage, dowry harassment, domestic violence, acid attack, sexual offences, honour killing, prostitution, trafficking, cybercrimes etc.
These disturbing trends of crime against women have spurred worldwide action. Considering the vulnerable nature of women, Article 15(3) was incorporated in the Constitution, which facilitated the enactment of gender-based laws.
