This chapter examines the problem of state-crime perpetrated against women, the question then becomes, in light of the far-reaching power of state and the continued state sanctioning of gender-based violence that disproportionately impacts women and girls, what should be done? State-perpetrated violence against women is more easily conceptualized when the acts of violence are committed directly by the state or its actors. In the case of violence against women, “the elaborate social structures that develop around such practices serve to appropriate key aspects of women’s independence and institutionalize patriarchy”. The Pink Saris represent a grassroots movement that has emerged owing to acute poverty, inequality, and marginalization – violations of basic human rights. The Pink Saris provide one example of an organic social movement that has developed in response to specific social and structural conditions to address the problem of violence against women.
