Abstract: With the fast-growing reach of the internet, speedy spread of mobile information and the escalated use of social media, our lives being inextricably mixed with online media has purported the emergence of crimes committed in cyberspace. This advent of technology has led to the emergence of cyber violence against females of all age groups which is posing a problem at the global level as it causes danger to the security, dignity and privacy of a human being as a whole. The cyber space has a virtual reality in which the criminals commit crimes by faking their identities and then hide in the same space provided by the internet. The legal structure of India is not yet well-equipped to deal with cybercrimes and also the lack of awareness leads to the unstoppable commission of these offences. The paper discusses the major reasons for the growth of cyber violence against women in the arena of cyber socialisation. This paper also recognizes the common types of cybercrimes against women, which are namely cyber stalking, cyber pornography, circulating images or video recordings of females becoming involved in intimate acts, morphing, sending obscene or defamatory messages or e-mails, blackmailing or threatening, trolling or bullying and impersonation. The paper discusses the substances of every type of offence, analyse the relevant laws and highlight the cases and their judgements on this matter.This paper seeks to introspect the gaps between cybercrimes against women and the laws made to protect them. This paper will also recommend the steps that are required to be taken up in order to mark cyber crimes against women and girls in a holistic and efficient way.
