Mother in laws from Nagpur have united under the All India Mother-in-law Protection forum to demand their rights as women on the upcoming International Women's day.(IWD) .The Mother-in-laws demanded protection and creation of laws which protects them from harassment from their daughter-in-laws apart from demands to make marital laws gender neutral offering equal protection to women from the husbands side also. They also demanded that the women’s commission treat complaints from mother-in-laws with equal importance as they treat complaints from daughter-in-laws. Indian women’s' follow a highly anti-male approach and do not entertain complaints from women unless the complaints is against a man. The Indian police on the other hand holds the dubious distinction of arresting over 126,000 women without trail or evidence in the last 4 years alone under the draconian 498A under the guise of women empowerment.
