Which constitutional right is violated by discrimination against women?


ANSWER

Right to equality


SOLUTION

The constitution of India has granted equal rights to the men and women. According to article 14 – The State shall not deny to any person equality before law or the equal protection of laws within the territory of India. And Article 15 states – State shall not discriminate against any citizen on grounds only of religion, race, caste, sex, and place of birth or any of them. Although various efforts have been taken to improve the status of women in India, the constitutional dream of gender equality is miles away from becoming a reality.
