Abstract

The NCRB report on Crime in India shows that women in homes are facing violence in all forms and this number is not reducing. The Supreme Court on the other hand is dismissing the genuine complaints of women on flimsy grounds turning them down as `liars' `disgruntled' women who are `gold diggers'. However, the women are defying patriarchal norms, challenging and defying norms and forcing the state to respond.

Keywords: Domestic Violence, Law, India, Supreme Court, Patriarchy, Powerlessness, Warriors
