About the Webinar
LEXAUXILIUM.COM in association with Jus Corpus is organizing a webinar session on
“The Conjunction of Domestic Violence, Divorce and S.125 CRPC in India & The Role of Indian Society”
The issue of domestic violence is omnipresent in every society; Indian or West. The societal mindset although with time has progressed but still the women is viewed subordinate to men in the most part of Indian society. Marriages in India are governed by the Special marriage act, 1955 and various personal laws, according to the region of the person.
Even after having stringent laws against domestic violence and constant support of the Indian Judiciary and Indian Constitution towards the maintenance of the divorced women and other underprivileged women, the ground reality portrays a very different and regressive picture.
This seminar will highlight the gaps between the laws and the implementation of such laws, besides touching the social aspects of the divorce, domestic violence, and its impact on the women and the children, who becomes vulnerable in such circumstances.
The speaker in this webinar will show how domestic violence is an issue across every religion and caste and how Indian Society has yet to come up with reformation in their mindset in order to provide equity and fair access to justice for such women.
