Chief Justice of India (CJI) JS Khehar on Wednesday said gender sensitisation must start at home and society’s mindset towards women needs to be changed to bring gender equality.Speaking at a function organised by the Supreme Court Gender Sensitisation and Internal Complaints Committee (GSICC) on International Women’s Day, Justice Khehar said crime against women is on the rise not only due to psychological reasons, but also due to physiological issues. Several factors, including the living condition of people, are responsible for men to commit heinous crime against women.

He said there is a great need of societal change to improve their living conditions, besides stricter and stringent law to control such type of crimes.

He said: “Man is the master of house. Why? Because wife looks after him and takes care of the children. When a man goes out, he does so by his free will, but if wife needs to go, she goes with her husband’s permission.”

“Man spends money as the way he chooses, but for wife, it is different,” he said, questioning how could we sensitise society when the birth of a son is celebrated in the family, but birth of a daughter is not.

“Even when husband and wife go for shopping, the man spends money as he chooses, but the wife spends what the husband allows her. Even the children learn whatever they seen at home,” he said.
