The National Commission for Women, a Statutory Body set up in January 1992 under the National Commission for Women Act, 1990 has the mandate to safeguard the constitutional and statutory rights of women. Keeping with its mandate, the Commission has, from time to time, taken up various initiatives to progressively increase awareness about the laws in order to generate awareness in the society against various social evils effecting rights of women and on rights and entitlements of women in the society as a whole. Also going by the belief that education is a process through which society creates the kind of individuals we wish to see in the world, the Commission is launching an Open Quiz on ‘Awareness on Crime against Women’, through MyGov Portal.
The aim of the programme is to inculcate values of equality, inclusivity and diversity, among citizens, which are essential for building a healthy society. Moreover, knowledge of laws relating to women is not only crucial for balanced development of young minds; it will also help citizens in building correct values, self-discipline and national spirit.
The Commission has formulated a booklet containing write-up on major laws relating to women with the help of the Expert Committee. The booklet is made available on the website of the Commission to be used by the participants at http://ncw.nic.in/search/node/module
