Topic : Gender discrimination in Indian Judicial System: Causes and Implications

Authors:Dr.P.Ganesn || Dr.S.D.Dineshkumar,Dr.P.Mariyappan

Abstract:In all over the world about a half of women population of working age is in the labour force comparing to nearly 80 per cent of men. As per report of World Bank data in 2014, female (above 15 years of age) work participation rate in India is only 27 per cent. Women participation in Government services is meager due to gender discrimination, violence against women, other forms of women suppression and the patriarchal social structure. Gender discrimination in Government institutions for a long time not only restrains women to enter into these services but also leads to denial of justice, when women are aggrieved of their legal rights and approached Governmental institutions. Presence of males in government institutions discourages women to claim their legal rights by suggesting loss of chastity, reputation, prestige and other attributes depending on women’s status. Masculinity tries to save male perpetrators for bribe or material benefits and suppresses feminine gender in all possible ways and thereby sets bad precedents, which lead to failure of implementation of all kind of women welfare laws. Political arena is completely inaccessible for women. It is persisting by male dominated attitude and practice for a long time. Legislature has meager representation of women, which denies chances for women to participate in the process of framing laws. Judiciary has very meager women representation, which is main cause for gender bias in all Governmental institutions..
