Recent years have seen an increase in the number of cases of harassment and cruelty against women in the workplace. The government’s primary concern is how to control and stop the rise in crime against women. In a society, women constitute nearly half of the population; in India, women are revered as goddesses. Although, what are the factors that have contributed to the rise in crime against women?              In my opinion, the following factors have contributed to the rise in crime against women:

first, a lack of education results in a corrupt mind set; and

second, a lack of awareness about the cisgender stigma;

The first reason is that our country’s police system is outdated and not very technologically advanced. An upgrade to new procedures and heightened police alertness are two other reasons why our country’s police system is out of date and not as advanced as it may be. To address this issue, the police system should be updated with modern techniques, and police officers should be on the lookout at all times.

The second reason is that the government has not given a well-established infrastructure that can assist women in contacting close friends or authorities in case of emergency. The government has not even built a well-established system that can assist women in contacting nearby family members or the police in the event of an emergency.

The laws in our nation are strict, and the punishment for crimes against women is growing all the time, which serves as a deterrent to those who commit such crimes. All forms of violence and wrongdoing against women are forbidden under Article 51a of India’s Constitution.

Finally, I would like to point out that in order to make our society safe for women, not only does the government or the police force need to act, but it is also the responsibility of every citizen under Article 51a of the Indian Constitution to abstain from all forms of violence and wrong practises against women. Fortunately, in our country, we have strict laws against violence against women, and the severity of the penalties for such offences is steadily increasing.
