India has always been a land of diversity and variety, which has been a source of richness and strength of different traditions, beliefs, systems of thought and ways of living and livelihoods. However, this was also a reason of tensions, disagreement and conflict. Anush Gasparyan will give an overview of harmful traditional practices that affect women human rights in the Indian context. Violence against women is a manifestation of the historically unequal power relations between man and women, which have led to the domination over and discrimination against women by men.
