Marital Rape

Marital Rape

Rape is an unlawful sex without assent of a man because of physical drive or dangers, or due to deceitful demonstration of perpetuator. In India rape by an outsider is a penal offense under section 375 and 376 of IPC. Shockingly, it unequivocally avoids marital rape from ambit of conviction. Marital rape is sex by spouse with his better half without her assent or by compel or danger.

Patriarchal framework that administers Indian families has constantly considered ladies as unimportant property of her significant other or guardian. So rape was considered as theft of ladies and wrong against spouse or guardian.

This belief system has impacted our legislatures in disregarding offense of spouse rape by giving it shield of wedding right of the spouse and by this they are noiselessly tolerating that ladies are only a protest of sexual satisfaction of her better half with no will of her own over her sexuality. This discernment has laid down ladies' entitlement to uniformity and equity.
