This paper examines the theme of women in peace and security (WPS) in South Asian nations. It outlines the reasons why there is no national action plan in India and its effect on women in three areas - participation, prevention, and protection. Four South-Asian nations, including India, are compared based on their socio-political conditions, discriminatory laws, and legal frameworks. By analysing the situation in Kashmir and the North-east through a gender lens, it examines the disproportionate burden placed on women by the state response.
