Women happen to occupy a major percentile of the population in a country like India. More often they were looked down upon as someone who are incapable of doing things. Over the course of time, this perception has changed greatly and as a result of it, we get to see women play active roles in various fields and arenas. Although there is much progress in this regard, there are crimes that are happening even at this juncture against women. Crimes against women have been prevalent in the Indian society in various forms and dimensions. The degree or the type of crime committed against them vary from one another. Recent turn of events in the country has seen women being at the forefront of things especially in movements like total prohibition of liquor, fighting for one’s rights etc. One of the chief arguments put forth by many scholars is that the stereotypes and perception against and on women prevalent in the society must change. This research study aims to look at the coverage of crimes that are happening against women in the recent past. The researchers will employ qualitative research approach in the form of content analysis and analyse the news articles in the leading Tamil dailies of Tamil Nadu.
