Role of judiciary in the context of domestic violence with special Reference to Covid- periodAuthor(s):
Countries, including India, had adopted the Universal Declaration on Human Rights (1948) and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination to protect women from any kind of violence. India had taken many human rights in their constitution from these documents like the right to equality, life, Freedom of expression, right to marry; the state cannot discriminate based on sex, etc. Violence is the major problem of the world which affects the human right of a woman. It also impacts the mental health of women”. “Domestic violence is one of the significant types of violence. Domestic violence is also called “domestic abuse” or “intimate partner violence.” It means a pattern of behaviour in any relationship used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner. It includes domestic abuse, economic abuse, sexual abuse, and physical abuse. Recently the NCW said that domestic violence cases have been increasing since lockdown. In most domestic violence cases, men are the perpetrator, and women are the victims. The Constitution of India and the legislature have given various laws and protections to women; still, they face domestic violence”. “So the researcher wants to study the concept of domestic violence against women in India, the types of domestic violence face by Indian women, and the consequences of domestic violence on victim’s health. The researcher also analyses the international and national laws on domestic violence and explores how the judiciary protects women from violence. The researcher also does an online pilot study on domestic violence against women in Gurgaon, Haryana, to identify why women face domestic violence? The researcher also takes primary and secondary data to analyse this issue”.Pages: 25-30 | Views: 167 | Downloads: 60Download Full Article: Click Here
