Offence of Rape: Survival Issues

Dr. Pratima Devi

Abstract :


No doubt we all will agree to the fact that though the constitution of India grants equal rights to man and women in all spheres of life but the streak reality is that women are assigned an inferior status and made to live in ultra misery, subjugation and subservience to men. They are completely ignored as if they have nothing more than existential identity, this unfortunate situation reduces women to the position of man’s appendage and slave to be used and disposed off at will. Such cruel exploitation of women goes unchecked in our society by immersing them obscurantist and superstitious beliefs rotten and warn out traditions and religious practices.

            In this article, I would try to highlight one inhuman and barbaric act and in fact, the most heinous crimes against women known as Rape and also discuss legal position, various reasons and victim compensation schemes and some valuable suggestions.
