Gender and violence are linked. Men and women have different responsibilities and behaviours as children and adults, determined by gender norms. These social standards dictate suitable male and female behaviour. Gender roles and behaviours often produce disparities in which one gender gains power at the other's expense. In many civilizations, women are subordinate to men and hold lesser social positions, giving men more decision-making power than women. Gender inequality has lasting societal effects. Gender imbalance boosts men's likelihood of assaulting women. Due to the assumption that men should reign over women, women and girls are more prone to physical, emotional, and sexual abuse by men. They make it harder for victims to flee or seek help. Men commit most of the violence against women despite efforts to promote gender equality.
This paper seeks to analyse Gender Violence against Women in particular while studying the concept of Gender Justice and the response of the Indian Judiciary to the same.
