India and Its Approach for Ensuring Gender Equality

Mayank Sethi


Abstract: The notion of gender equality has been long evolved from the essential human rights and it seeks to contribute in delivering of justice to society regardless of their gender. By achieving a gender justice, the state can ensure a dignified life to its citizens. In India, to achieve a goal of gender justice our constitution makers had included number of constitutional measures in our constitution. These measures are implemented by our legislatures into our society through various guidelines and schemes. Besides legislature, our Judiciary has also shown a dynamic approach towards ensuring gender equality in India. A recent example of this can be seen in the decision of Supreme court in which they have given equality to LGBTQ community by decriminalizing the section 377 of Indian Penal Code, 1860. It can be said that the parameters to achieve gender equality are also changing with the passage of time and in recent many different issues stood up in front of our society which are concentrated more on the upliftment of economic rights of a woman, equal representations of women in politics, etc. In this paper we will analyze the various policies made by Indian legislature to implement all the constitutional safeguards for gender equality. Also, we will be analyzing the role of Indian Judiciary in achieving the gender equality. In this paper, we will also be discussing some of the remedial measures by which we can secure the gender equality in our society.
