About the webinar
The Himalayas is one of the youngest mountain regions of the world. The land mass has not found its final form and its ecosystem is one of the most fragile in India. In the lap of Western Himalayas lie the states of Jammu & Kashmir (J & K), Himachal Pradesh (HP) and Uttarakhand. These mountainous states have their unique cultural and social systems. These are the states of villages, which are mostly rural. The status of women in any civilization shows the stage of evolution at which the civilization has arrived. The term status includes not only personal and proprietary rights but also duties, liabilities and disabilities. In the case of an Indian woman it means her personal rights, proprietary right, her duties, liabilities and disabilities vis-a-vis the society and her family members. ‘Status’ is correlated to the participatory right and obligations of women in the managing of society; there studies examine the role assigned to them by tradition, religion, ideology and the stage of economic development. The social and political development of women has a direct effect on future. The future world is dependent on their present development. The society has ratified their rights. It was during the twentieth century that the concept of child rights emerged. The rights perspective is embodied in the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), adopted in 1979 by the UN General Assembly, is often described as an international bill of rights for women, is a landmark in international women rights legislation. It shifted the focus to the ‘rights’. The rights approach is primarily concerned with issues of social justice, non discrimination, equity and empowerment. The Convention provides the basis for realizing equality between women and men through ensuring women’s equal access to, and equal opportunities in, political and public life including the right to vote and to stand for election, as well as education, health and employment. The Convention is the only human rights treaty which affirms the reproductive rights of women and targets culture and tradition as influential forces shaping gender roles and family relations. It affirms women’s rights to acquire, change or retain their nationality and the nationality of their children. States parties also agree to take appropriate measures against all forms of traffic in women and exploitation of women.
Increasing incidents of crime against women, emotional or physical, raising the concern world over. There are women protection laws and policies at the national level to address these kinds of issues, to strengthen women protection system and promoting positive social norms in all contexts to prevent and respond to violence, exploitation and abuse directed at women. The constitution of India granted equality to all sections of society and also authorized the state to do positive discrimination for uplifting deprived sections of Indian society. The fundamental rights and directive principles of state policy are embedded in our constitution for upliftment of deprived sections of society.
Irony is, despite so many laws and policies for the protection, women are still at the verge of danger and uncertainties. The challenges this vulnerable group is facing are immense and need to be addressed effectively.
