By achieving a gender justice, the state can ensure a dignified life to its citizens. In India, to achieve a goal of gender justice our constitution makers had included number of constitutional measures in our constitution. These measures are implemented by our legislatures into our society through various guidelines and schemes. Besides legislature, our Judiciary has also shown a dynamic approach towards ensuring gender equality in India.
