Globalization is now acting as watchdog in the development of countries. History speaks for itself that how women who constitute 49% of world population are tangential and are never considered a valued part of the society. This author attempts to examine the need to recognize acid attacks on women as “real crime” and how they are strictly gender biased. Framing laws in relation to this crime should become an important part for government policies especially in countries which are fast globalizing. In recent decades, this issue has been increasing and effecting life of not only the victim but her family as well. In light of this perspective, the paper will provide an extensive analysis of case studies relating to the acid
attacks on women in India and how Indian laws pre 2013 amendment remained silent to this. Finally, the author recommends the need of the hour to ponder over these issues and a need for stringent laws. Also, importance of gender equality and how women are instrumental in the globalization process and later for the development of the country.
