The current research paper focuses on how women in India and other countries become a victim of acid attack and how they suffer for the rest of their lives. The reason behind this heinous crime of acid attack is to kill a woman or disfigure her for the rest of her life. It is a way to silence a woman when she speaks for herself and disagrees with a man or rejects his proposal for marriage or to become his partner. This paper will also focus on the dark and horrendous impact an acid attack has on a woman and her mental, physical and emotional health and how our medical and legal system fails to protect and handle such cases.
