The National Commission for Women was established in January 1992 with the aim of promoting gender equality and protecting the rights of women in India. The Commission has been at the forefront of efforts to empower women and ensure that their rights are protected. Over the years, NCW has taken several initiatives to address issues such as gender-based violence, discrimination against women, and unequal pay.
President Murmu’s address at the 31st Foundation Day of NCW was well received by those in attendance, who appreciated her commitment to promoting women’s rights and gender equality. Her address served as a reminder of the important role that NCW plays in promoting women’s rights and the need for continued efforts to empower women in India.
The National Commission for Women was established to create an equal and just livelihood for women in India through legal and constitutional amendments. Violence against women is a fundamental violation of human rights that occurs across nations, societies, cultures, and classes, and this commission was established to put an end to this violation of this fundamental right.
The Commission’s goal is to provide a forum for a diverse and varied exchange of dialogue centred on gender equality in decision-making and leadership roles for women from various socioeconomic backgrounds.
The National Commission for Women was established in January 1992 as a legislative entity under the National Commission for Women Act of 1990. It was formed to assess the constitutional and legal safeguards for women, suggest corrective legislative measures, promote grievance redressal, and advise the government on women’s policy issues.
