Abstract:
Over the past few years there has been a global discourse on gender based violence (GBV), including a variety of international and domestic policies, programs, and initiatives set to combat the issue, understanding the gravity of the same. There is a history of female oppression and sexism behind a social mindset of gender based violence, with governmental policies changing to suit the norms of various years. However, innovative and effective ways of dealing with crimes against women have emerged, including technology-driven solutions, corporate policies, CSR initiatives, and non-profit organizations that equip women with tools to prevent crimes against them, and also attempt to make environments and neighborhoods safer at the local level. This paper will review the history, and developments with respect to crimes against women in the Indian context, and provide brief policy recommendations for future changes that can help empower women and provide them a safe environment where they may empower themselves.
