Up to the last decade the deep-rooted age-old prejudices, religious blind believes, under-education and social extremism etc. were thought to be the cause of subservient and exploitable position of Indian women in society. The factor for the violence against women (VAW) was presumed to be due - they are ignorant of their rights and hence do not have access to the justice. However, in the present decade there is political austerity and concept of women empowerment surging across the country. There are tangible improvements in the lifestyle of Indian women, but their social safety and security is still remaining flimsy. Today, a most empowered woman may not as secured and safe as it is expected. The incidence of violence against women (VAW) is still the same or higher. Nevertheless, the global picture of VAW is also not that much satisfactory but the Indian scenario is further worse. Despite the enactment of laws, formulation of reformative measures, provision of legal aid to the needy, extensive use of the provision of Public Interest Litigation (VAW-PILs), conduct of Family Courts, Women/Family counselling centres etc., women in India have a long way to go in concretizing their Constitutional Goals into reality. To put forth this issue in various fora and extensive discussions backed up with data and literatures may bring out some successful solutions to curb down this social malady.
