The term human rights denote all those right which are inherent in our nature and without which we cannot live as human beings. According to Section 2 of the protection of human right Act 1993, Human Rights means the rights relating to life, liberty and dignity of an individual covenants and enforceable by the courts in India. The majority of people in India are not aware of their Human rights. There rights are the rights of all human rights, be it men or women, old or young, working or non working. But, there is quite a gap between the theory and the practice, particularly when it comes to the equality of sexes.
The constitution of India as well as other laws enacted from time to time reaffirms faith in the in the “Equality of status and opportunity” without discrimination against and citizen on grounds of religion, race caste or sex. It is however distressing to note that majority of working women in India are either not aware of such Constitutional and legal safeguards or consciously chooses not to raise voice against violation of their human’s rights.
