New Delhi: July 07, 2011
If a comprehensive justice system were in place, social, economic and political rights for women would fall in place, said Lakshmi Puri, assistant secretary-general and deputy executive director of UN Women. In Delhi, to launch the Progress of the World's Women: In Pursuit of Justice 2011-2012, Puri said despite widespread poverty, illiteracy and lack of awareness of legal rights among women, India was on the right track as far as judicial empowerment of women is concerned. Legislation to end violence against women in both public and private spaces and the creation of a protection force for women are some of the positive responses from the government.
