The effect of the crime on a woman is not restricted to physical injury. The psychological damage is also severe, sometimes resulting in cases of suicide and mental retardation. If a woman gets the right to punish a culprit, she trusts the system, and the culprit can also get an equal punishment for his crime. There are many cases in the past where women were killed by rapists or molesters. Rape is not only a physical crime. It is also an emotional and psychological crime. A woman can suffer many more problems later on because of rape. The victim may have physical injuries, but it is the mental wounds that last much longer.
Although victims of rape may be provided with counseling and medical care by the state or by their organization, it is often difficult for them to get justice from the criminal justice system. The perception that rape is a ‘dirty’ and ‘shameful’ crime that should be kept secret causes the victim to feel further shame. The effect of the crime on a woman is not restricted to physical injury. The psychological damage is also severe, sometimes resulting in cases of suicide and mental retardation. The government often tries to be a representative of the citizens. As such, they should get involved with affairs that affect society, citizens, and other important aspects. When it comes to deciding on matters like divorce that affect men and women directly and in different ways, the government should take a strong stand or make any kind of conclusion based on facts and real cases.
Women should have legal protection against domestic violence. Indeed, a man can hardly provide good care, sometimes even found guilty in court. But the legal provisions do not allow this and very stringent, who will land in jail if they the violation of the law. From the time of its inception, women were treated as objects that only had the purpose of being used by men. And in the present day, things have not changed as much. Life for women is still a world where women are expected to conform to certain roles in society and conventional behavior is supposed to be practiced by them.
Women should use the right of punishment to her culprit under the Indian legal system. The best law against man’s aberrance to women is necessary and women had the right to punish their culprit as a state. Now the Indian penal code is equally fair to both, i.e. male and female but women must make separate laws separately for their courage to face any offenses against them so that they can get justice earlier.
