POOJA BAHUGUNA JCR. 2020: 1742-1749
This critical review paper examines the laws in India for crimes against women through an analytical lens. It provides an overview of the various laws enacted to protect women's rights and prevent violence against them, including the Indian Penal Code, the Dowry Prohibition Act, and the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. The paper analyzes the effectiveness of these laws in addressing crimes against women, and identifies areas for improvement, such as strengthening the legal framework for sexual assault and harassment cases. The review also highlights the social and cultural factors that contribute to violence against women in India and suggests that legal reforms alone cannot fully address this complex issue. Overall, this critical review paper provides a comprehensive analysis of the laws for crimes against women in India, and offers insights into potential avenues for further progress. The paper emphasizes the need for a holistic approach that addresses both the legal and societal factors that contribute to violence against women, and suggests that continued research and advocacy are necessary to achieve meaningful change
