Abstract

Faces behind patriarchy are given a tight slap and a strong message is conveyed to the society whenever someone throws some light on women’s rights. Even after seventy years of independence, women are still struggling for their independence from the invisible forces of the society that binds her. Women often feel restricted when it comes to their expression of thoughts and they are not given the respect they deserve. This article talks about the distressing journey of women from their mother's womb to the wooden tomb. The decision of the life of the unborn girl is vested on the society and it is observed that, India who first recognized the value of reproductive rights of women and commercialized it has now been banned, and the said decision has gone against the fundamental rights of women, which could also lead to an increase in illegal reproductive practices in the country. Thirdly, women have to face this plight of marital rape which Indian laws cover it under domestic violence, cruelty and sexual abuse but are inadequate. The article also indicates the predicament of women and children during COVID-19 where they had no other option left but to live with their abusers.
