Transnationalization of Crime against Asian Indian Women


The uniqueness of crime against women of India is its disguise as sociocultural practices. People, including women, believe these practices are for their well being and for that of society. These practices are so deeply intermingled with the sociocultural lifestyles that, in spite of a plethora of corrective legislation, to date not a single ill practice demeaning women has been eradicated. Rather, in emerging situations under globalization, these practices are taking new forms leading to new consequences for women of Indian origin living across the horizons. This paper reviews the circumstances and proposes solutions to eradicate these unjust practices by making a major paradigm shift in the social system and reconstructing social reality to empower women by using life course perspective.
