Family is an important institution developed by humanity in course of making this race more civilized and women have played crucial role in this process indisputably. But with increasing crime against women and children in families, the very string to harmonize our social milieu is losing its tone gradually. As per a report by The Jharkhand State Women Commission, about 40% women in the state are affected by physical, emotional or sexual violence committed by their husbands. This trend reflects here with 7,563 cases of rape and 3,398 cases of dowry atrocities during the decade of 2001-10 as per Jharkhand Human Rights Report.
