This abstract probes into the nuanced realm of human rights concerning women within the context of the Indian Constitution. The Constitution of India, enacted in 1950, serves as a bedrock for safeguarding and advancing women's rights, encapsulating a profound commitment to gender equality. Several articles within the Constitution explicitly address the rights of women and underscore the commitment to their empowerment. Human beings are born equal in dignity and rights. These are moral claims which are inalienable and inherent in all human individuals by virtue of their humanity alone. These claims are articulated and formulated in what we today call human rights and have been translated into legal rights established according to the law creating processes of societies both national and international level. Women is the basis of the human society. She is the direct agent of life and if the foundation is not firm or is neglected the whole building of human society is bound to crack and dismember. But sadly, femininity is devalued in the society except for the purpose of producing future generations. A woman has always treated as a wife, a sister, a daughter and a mother but never as an individual. The psychology of subjugation of women still reigns supreme in the minds of men. It has been even sanctifying over the ages by religion, myths and superstations. Despite these constitutional safeguards, India faces persistent challenges in translating these principles into action. Gender-based discrimination, violence against women, and disparities persist. Nevertheless, the Indian Constitution remains a resilient cornerstone for women's rights, continually inspiring legal and social advancements, and exemplifying India's unwavering commitment to nurturing a society where women's human rights are valued, protected, and realized.
