Women are not safe, whether it is in their houses, public places or at the workplace. Remember knowledge is power. As a parent, wife, daughter, employee and a woman these are rights set in place to protect you and it is important that you are aware about these.

A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra unanimously ruled that Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code is unconstitutional, and struck it down. The Supreme Court is reading out a crucial verdict on a 150-year-old adultery law that considers punishment only to a man and not a married woman for an affair by treating her as a victim and not as an abettor of the offence. "Adultery law arbitrary," said the Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra.Section 497 of the Indian Penal Code deals with Adultery. As per the Indian law, a woman cannot be punished for the offence of adultery. Only a man who has consensual sexual intercourse with the wife of another man without his consent can be punished under this offense in India. If someone "lives in adultery", the partner can file for divorce.

Here are some Indian women legal rights you should be aware of.
