sensitivity towards women or towards victim ?

last few days there have several instances where over and over again it has been said that system – police and judicial system should be sensitized to women issues. in a situation where even apex court has agreed that some women are misusing laws to harass other men, women, elders I wonder if we should say ; the system should be sensitized towards the sufferer, the victim.

The judiciary since ages has been respected for just one thing – delivering justice to victim in an impartial way, should it not be left out of political and feminist motives  and remain true to the basics of law and justice so as to preserve its divine image ?


A male can be victim  at hands of  female – can he expect justice  in a system where as soon as a male is exposed to misuse of law the first thing he is told is – system is partial towards / tilted in favour of women complainants. this starts from police station , lawyers office and the court complex itself though I have not come across any Judge who said it openly in my face.

think: does it enhance the image of judiciary ? does it help in eradication of crime or eradication of misuse of law – does it help in making a better society ?

In our society who holds the responsibility of  assuring a male  entangled in gender based litigation including divorce, domestic violence and dowry related cases that he can look forward to a fair impartial trial and that judicial system is not gender sensitive but victim sensitive  , is it the government  or law enforcement agencies like police, media , NGOs or the Judiciary itself  through words and actions ?

And even despite such views/ conditions if a male fights back and wins should he not be rewarded  for showing faith in judicial system and not giving in to pressure for an out of court settlement ? should the woman who misuses law be not punished ?

me thinking- you also think.

kindly share views.
