The expanding reach of information technology has made it easier for people to keep in touch across long distances and collaborate for purposes related to business, education and culture among others. However, the means that enable the free flow of information and ideas over long distances also give rise to a worryingly high incidence of irresponsible behavior towards women. Any technological development is capable of beneficial uses as well as misuse. It is the job of the legal system and regulatory agencies to keep pace with the same and ensure that newer technologies do not become tools of exploitation and harassment. The present study is an attempt to highlight the cyber-crimes against women in India. To make the study richer a brief glance of the cyber crime protection laws especially for women in UK and USA is taken as reference point. however the economic, political and social conditions of these countries are different to each other. Moreover, the problem against women is also treated of the same nature worldwide. The study throws light on the types of cyber crimes against women in India in the light of Information Technology Act, 2000. And viz-a-viz the problems and loopholes behind dealing with Cyber Crimes against Women. In this research paper, I am trying to find out some precautionary measures so that women can protect themselves from the cyber-crime instead of make their dependence upon legal system.
