About Webinar on Safety of Women with Rising Cyber Crimes

The Webinar is a humble initiative to invite thinking minds of different areas to deal with the issue of “Women Empowerment” in specific Cyber Crimes against Women and their safety with an objective to spread awareness and promote a good cause.

Crimes of any nature are reported every two minutes. Women are victimized from the womb to the tomb. They are constantly subjected to crimes like Female Foeticide, Child Marriage, Dowry Harassment, Domestic Violence, Acid Attack, Sexual Offences, Honour Killing, Prostitution, Trafficking, Cyber Crime, etc. Considering the vulnerable nature of women, these disturbing trends of crime against women have spurred worldwide action.

In furtherance of this, time and again many laws are enacted to curb crimes against women and assure them a safe environment to live their life with dignity. However, the core concern is the implementation of these laws. Though crimes against women are on the rise in all fields, being a victim of Cyber Crimes could be the most traumatic experience for a woman.
