Navigating legal challenges for women in Indian sports


Dr. Pawan Singh Raghav


Shall she halt her educational pursuits to embrace Hockey? Does her future lie in this sport? When do you envision arranging your daughter's marriage? Might she encounter mistreatment or harassment if she relocates to another city? How will we secure finances for supplements and training expenses? These are the commonplace interrogations hurled at women athletes or their parents by Indian society. Despite existing in the 21st century, a time marked by our ability to voyage into space, one critical aspect where our shortcomings glaringly persist is the perpetuation of gender discrimination between men and women. India's sex ratio stands as a stark testament to this reality. Particularly in India, women are still perceived through the lens of fragility, a mindset that significantly obstructs their progress, particularly within the realm of sports.

The author have purposefully selected this specific theme due to the prevailing challenges faced by Indian women. Even in contemporary times, these obstacles hinder women from reaching greater heights in their pursuit of athletic goals. This study meticulously delves into the constitutional and legal facets that, when effectively executed, can mitigate—ultimately eradicating—these issues from their very roots. Its primary aim is to elevate women athletes to an equal pedestal as their male counterparts. The study's conclusions encapsulate several recommendations aimed at achieving this balance.
