While criminal law generally promotes and mandates the majority of power relations, law compels and authorises competing social power. Women employees are a major factor in the economy’s transformation. But the development that we want to pursue can be hindered by gender disunity and violence. The gender divide has been made necessary by all the philosophies, structures and current policies. The first part of the paper starts with an introduction to the present system of gender disparity in India with respect to the Criminal Justice system. Second part deals with the various causes gender disparity in India. Third part of the paper talks about the contemporary examples of women being mistreated in the system. The paper ends with the recommendations as to how the disparity can be reduced along with the conclusion. Socio-cultural transformation can be achieved by increasing literacy and economic mobility, dealing with the majority of the issues facing women. As men are involved in government departments, implementation of welfare laws and schemes is quite sluggish.
