Women in India hold a very respectful position in society since the Vedic age. In India, women have been given equal rights as to men. But the scene is not the same with woman prisoners in India. Women prisoners are ‘criminals' but they have some human rights and we can't violate them. Women prisoners face many challenges like lack of sanitation and improper hygiene and custodial rapes and sexual abuse and what not in the prison. There is a need to address all these problems faced by women prisoners. This research paper talks about various problems faced by women prisoners and according to a survey done by me, what is the public's opinion about these problems. Hence the research is mostly based on empirical research.
