Even while crime against women is on the rise overall, a woman's experience as a victim of cybercrime can be the most upsetting, especially in India, where the culture denigrates women and the judicial system hardly acknowledges cybercrimes. In this article, I aim to talk about the various types of cybercrime that can harm women. I'll also go through the laws that are in place to safeguard women in these scenarios, including the Information Technology Act of 2000 and the constitutional mandate. I'll use many well-known cybercrime cases, including the Ritu Kohli case, to draw my conclusion. The causes of the present increase in cybercrime against women are also being thoroughly examined by us. The right to privacy is now a part of the enhanced article 21 of the Indian Constitution. If cybercrime results in the loss of a person's private property or personal goods, the perpetrator may be held accountable under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. In addition, I want to propose a number of solutions to India's rising cybercrime against women. The alternatives that will be accessible to cybercrime victims and the reforms that must be made to the legal system in order to effectively deter cybercriminals are the main points of discussion at the conclusion.
