About Seminar

 ‘Where women are worshipped, Deity dwell there’

Women occupied a better, extolled status in society during Vedic period. They enjoyed all types of freedom and occupied many higher and important positions in the society. Some of the versus of Rigveda have been written by female Rishis (known as Brahamvadinis). With the passage of time position of women deteriorated and their liberties were drastically curtailed.

 During last three centuries, there were certain movements in the society to elevate the status of women in India, like moment initiated by Shri Vidhyasagar, Shri Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Shri Dayanand Saraswati, Swami Vivekanand, Mahatma Jyoti Rao Phule, Mahatma Gandhi and others. But all these efforts have proved very little and they did not bear much fruit. But they aimed to elevate the position of women in the society and to revive good traditions of the society. Such movements were related to remarriages of widows, women education, prohibition on Sati Pratha, veil system preventing in the society. As a result of which the Bengal Sati regulation was passed on December 4, 1829 and by the Independent India- The Sati (Prevention) Act in 1987. Simultaneously, the criminal laws were passed during British period which also included various provisions relating of offences/ violence against women – e.g. The Indian Penal Code passed in 1860, has such provisions, such as to outrage the modesty of women kidnaps, Abduction, wrongful restraint and confinement etc. The Criminal Procedure Code passed in 1898 provided for the special procedure for women offenders and in-camera proceedings. Later on the Dowery (Prohibition) Act was passed in 1961 to eradicate the pernicious dowry practice from our society.

The Indian Constitution, which came into effect on January 26, 1950, introduced the equality of status and opportunities (Article 14 to 18) and  Justice -Social, Economic and Political and liberty of thought, expression and belief (Article 19 to 22). But these provisions did not bring the desired changes in the Status of women. The Constitutional armoury and myriad Act passed by the Indian Parliament could not cut much ice and could not elevate the social and economic status of Indian women.

Therefore, we are organizing this Seminar to hold threadbare discussion about the status of women in India in the light of national and international laws. This platform would also examine the inequality prevailing in the society in spite of plethora of laws. We hope that the Seminar will come out with useful and fruitful suggestions.
