National Institute of Public Cooperation and Child Development, New Delhi
Orientation Programme on Legal Rights and Entitlements for Women
Dates: 13 – 17 October, 2014
Venue: NIPCCD, New Delhi
Programme Design
The status of women in India has been undergoing a sea-change. Supported by
Constitutional guarantees to ensure dignity and equal opportunities, their active participation in
all walks of life including education, politics, sport etc., has been growing. Taking note of
women’s role in the nation-building activities, the Government had declared 2001 as the year of
Women’s Empowerment by adopting a National Policy to offer “Swashakti” to women. Several
laws have also been adopted to empower women socially, economically, legally and politically.
Considering the role of rural India, the country’s backbone, the Government had taken several
measures to strengthen Pachayanti Raj system with the active participation of women. This gave
a boost to increase the number of women being elected to the Lok Sabha and State Assemblies,
an indication to suggest their political empowerment. The Constitution not only grants equality
to women, but also empowers the State to adopt measures of positive discrimination in favour of
women. Within the framework of a democratic polity, our laws, development policies, plans and
programmes have aimed at women’s advancement in different spheres.
India has also ratified various international conventions and human rights instruments
committing to secure equal rights of women. Key among them is the ratification of the
Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1993.The
Legal rights of women refers to the social and human rights of women. One of the first women’s
rights declarations was the Declaration of Sentiments. The dependent position of women in
early law is proved by the evidence of most ancient systems. Rights are legal, social, or ethical
principles of freedom or entitlement; that is, rights are the fundamental normative rules about
what is allowed of people or owed to people, according to some legal system, social convention, or
ethical theory. Rights are of essential importance in such disciplines as law and ethics, especially
theories of justice and deontology. Rights are often considered fundamental to civilization,
being regarded as established pillars of society and culture and the history of social conflicts
can be found in the history of each right and its development.
The Constitution of India not only grants equality to women but also empowers the
State to adopt measures of positive discrimination in favour of women for neutralizing the
cumulative socio economic, education and political disadvantages faced by them. Fundamental
Rights, among others, ensure equality before the law and equal protection of law; prohibits
discrimination against any citizen on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth, and
guarantee equality of opportunity to all citizens in matters relating to employment. Articles 14,
15(a), 15(3), 16, 39(a), 39(b), 39(d) and 42 of the Constitution are of specific importance in this
regard. The Protection of Civil Rights Act,1955, and the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled
Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act,1989, which provide for offences of the practice of
untouchability and atrocities against members of SCs and STs, by persons not belonging to SCs
and STs, respectively.
Article 46 of the Constitution states that, “The State shall promote, with special care, the
education and economic interests of the weaker sections of the people, and, in particular of the
scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, and shall protect them from social injustice and all
forms of social exploitation. "Article 330,332,335,338 to 342 and the entire Fifth and Sixth
Schedules of the Constitution deal with special provisions for implementation of the objectives
set forth in Article 46. Similarly, Article 30 (1) provides for the rights of the minorities to
establish and administer educational institutions of their choice. In addition, the existing
legislations on violence against women such as the IPC provisions on rape (Section 375 to 376D),
cruelty to married women (Section 498A), dowry death (Section 304B), outraging and insulting
the modesty of a woman (Sections 354 and 509), importation of girls (Section 366A), Dowry
Prohibition Act, 1961, Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 and Prohibition
of Child Marriage Act, 2006 can also be used by SC women and children.
With a vibrant women’s rights movement in India, there are constant demands for better
laws, provisions, and accountability for implementation. Currently, better provisions in IPC &
CRPC such as Sections 375 and 376 of the Indian Penal Code, there have been small but
significant amendments in legal instruments concerning women. For example, “Protection of
Women against Domestic Violence Act, 2005”, provides protection from violence in the
household from not only male perpetrators, but also female perpetrators like mothers-in-law
and other female members in extended families. It is a well known fact that majority of women
experience violence from those close to them, either in the family or in the neighbourhood. The
Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013,
seeks to cover women working both in the organised and unorganised sectors as well as those
who enter the workplace as clients, apprentices, students, patients etc.
There are many committed organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in
India working for the advancement of women's rights in addition to government appointed
agencies. But only legislations and law enforcement agencies cannot prevent the incident of
crime against women. There is need of social awakening and change in the attitude of masses, to
give due respect and equal status to women. This awakening can be brought by educational
campaign among youth making them aware of existing social evils and the means to eradicate
same. Mass media can play an active role as in present days it has reached every corner of the
nation. The NGOs also play an important role in an united expression of international, national,
regional and local level voice to assist and stand-up for those who can’t speak for themselves.
The Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) often play a critical role in advocating for changes
in law, policy, procedure and administrative rules. Hence, it is important to advance knowledge of
personnel both in Government and NGO's, working with women of recent developments on the
subject of legal rights and entitlement of women so that they can, in turn, empower women for
securing their rights, services and entitlements. Keeping this in view, the Institute proposes to
organize an Orientation Programme on Legal Rights and Entitlements for Women from 13–17
October, 2014 at NIPCCD Headquarters, New Delhi -110016.
