Though crime against women is on a rise in all fields being a victim of cybercrime could be most traumatic experience for a woman. Especially in India where the society looks down upon the women, and the law doesn’t even properly recognise cybercrimes. In this paper I plan to discuss upon the various types of cybercrimes that can be inflicted upon a women and how they adversely affect her. I shall also briefly examine upon the various laws that exist to protect women in such cases such as the Information Technology Act (2000) and the new laws that are coming upon in this field such as the Criminal Amendment Bill (2013). I will be taking assistance of various cases reputed cases (eg: Ritu Kohli case) in cybercrime to arrive at our conclusion. We are also having an elaborate review upon the recent increase in cybercrime on women and its various causes.
I also plan to suggest several remedies to counter the ever increasing cybercrime against women in India. At our conclusion we will focus upon the options available to the victims to cybercrime and the changes required in legal system to effectively curb the rising spirits of cyber criminals.
