Abstract

Comparative Analysis Between Gender Equality And Gender Biased Laws In India Author: Gunjan, Ph.D. Research Scholar, Maharaja Agrasen University, Baddi, District Solan, Himachal Pradesh 174103 Co-Author: Dr. Sheetal Thakur,(Ph.D. Supervisor), Assistant Professor, School of Law, Maharaja Agrasen University, Baddi, District Solan, Himachal Pradesh 1741 ABSTRACT Gender inequalities are one of the most prominent manifestations of inequality on the planet. Gender disparity in India applies to wellness, employment, social and political differences between males and females in India. After the infamous Delhi gang-rape incident that took place in the country in the year 2012, there was a need to condemn and make stricter laws against such crimes against women. The government constituted a committee under the chairmanship of the former Chief Justice of India, Justice J.S. Verma to suggest guidelines for the protection of women and passed the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act 2013. The recommendations of the committee were however not taken into consideration as a whole and gender-specific laws were framed as a result of bowing down to feminist pressures opposing gender-neutral laws that were recommended by the committee. The author throughout this article tries to examine the loopholes in the Women Protection Laws in India that are gender-specific and penalizes only the male gender and does not give equal protection to the male gender with respect to the same crimes being committed against them. The author delves into analyzing the current protective legislation in India in the light of gender-neutral laws and concludes by suggesting the necessary changes that can be implemented so as to protect all the genders equally under the law and not protecting only a single class at cost of the other.
