India is a most famous country for its great traditions and culture where women are given most respected place of ‘Goddess Lakshmi’ in the society. In India women comprises almost half of the population but still they are fighting for their rights and lag behind in many aspects of life such as education, health, employment etc. in the male dominated society. Worldwide 35 percent women are victim of physical/sexual violence either by husband or relative which is not a good sign for society. India’s rank in Gender inequality index is 125 which shows how much we are concern on women related issue and in global gender gap index is 87 even after the flagship program BetiBachao-BetiPadhao. According to a report, India is the world’s most dangerous place for women. So we need some most comprehensive and intensive effort to tackle gender based crime.

Keeping in above backdrop, the present paper is a humble attempt to understand gender based crimes as a challenge in the way of women empowerment. Present paper also highlights some issues regarding the crime against women in India.
