Arrow Caste panchayats are not above law


NCW chairperson Girija Vyas, in an interview to Ashok Kumar, says that women continue to remain at the receiving end of the political and religious tussles.

Women’s issues have once again come to forefront with a steep rise in crimes against them. Whether it’s the women’s reservation bill, bar girls of Maharastra or Sania Mirza facing the edicts of religious leaders, women continue to remain at the receiving end of the political and religious tussles.


National Commission for Women, a statutory body, was established more than a decade ago to fulfill its functions of addressing the grievances and accelerating the socio-economic development of women.


Its chairperson Girija Vyas, a former union minister and Rajasthan PCC president, and chairperson of the AICC’s media wing, has represented Udaipur Lok Sabha constituency in Rajasthan several times. Girija says she is working in the right earnest to improve the lot of women, “we have formulated bills and some of the bills passed by the Parliament such as the one related to ‘Domestic Violence against women’ and ‘ right to a share of a girl in her father’s property’ happened because of our efforts”
