legal rights in India for women

In the last post, we discussed the safeguards present in the constitution of India for women in the country. Apart from a strong constitutional framework to achieve women's empowerment, the government of the country from time to time frames the laws necessary to fight against the ills present in society that are hampering the development of women. The lawmakers of the country have always considered the aspirations of the people living in the time. When the constitution was framed, then too, it was all aspirations and goals of the society at that time which provided the foundation for the constitution, and later on, with the passage of time as the society evolved and the people's aspirations changed, those changes were dealt perfectly by bringing in various laws. The government has framed different laws to protect the rights and pride of women like the Protection of women from Domestic Violence Act, Commission of Sati (Prevention) Act, Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act,

Safeguards provided to women in Constitution of India.

India is a country where women have been worshiped for thousands of years. Our culture has always been respectful to women. However, in the current times, women's condition is not very good and the government is working in every field to improve the overall condition ( Government schemes for women empowerment ). At the time when our Constitution was framed the constitution makers saw the socio-economic disparity between the two genders and provided the proper social and political support in the constitution so that this disparity could be eliminated. Since the inception of the constitution, various frameworks have been made by the government to work for the betterment of women. Various social welfare schemes are being run by the government to improve the condition of women in society. Constitution has protected the rights of women by providing different provisions in Fundamental Rights, directive principles of State policy, Fundamental duties, and reservation in elections.
