      SENSITIZATION PROGRAMME FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PROTECTION OF WOMEN FROM DOMESTIC VIOENCE ACT 2005
(FEB 2 – 3, 2010)

The programme was organized by the NIPCCD (National Institute of Public Cooperation and Child Development) centre. Two students and a teacher attended this sensitization programme representing IDCR Loyola College.
The two day programme addressed the issues relating to gender based violence: its causes and consequences, domestic violence in general and its effects on family life and children, the support services for victims were discussed and presented in detail.
In our society preferences are always given to the males including the last rites and rituals. It continues to be male dominated. The status of women in the family is always les compared to men. Women always continue to be the victim of violence of all sorts. Earlier when a woman faces a problem at home she tries to approach the police but they won’t pay much attention to her considering it to be some family problem but later on if she is killed then they file a case under criminal law. The Strategies states that 19 women die of domestic violence in a day. Every 3rd person is subjected to sexual violence or atrocities. To curb all this violence, Domestic Violence Act is introduced in 2005. Domestic violence includes:
• Physical Abuse
Causing bodily injury, impairment of health or assault, criminal intimidation, criminal force.
• Sexual Abuse
Conduct of humiliating, degrading or violating of assets etc.
• Verbal or Emotional Abuse
Insult, ridicule, humiliation, threats
• Economic Abuse
Deprivation of financial resources, alienation of assets etc.
So if a women faces a problem at home she can approach the Protection Officers who are specially appointed for this purpose. They provide her with medical assistance, shelter and compensations.
Domestic Violence Act protects women from all these atrocities and helps them to lead peaceful and harmonious life not only at home but also in the society.
Through this programme we came to know that there is an Act to protect the women from domestic violence. The procedures and instructions were given in order to guide the aggrieved person. By this programme we can create awareness to women.
