Two recent incidents – trolling of Safoora Zargar and bois locker room are enough to disturb any prudent person. The list is long, women have always been seen inferior to their counter-parts. They have been facing violence, harassment and eve-teasing. The digital platforms with its multifarious advantages have put their lives also at more scrutiny. Corona Virus which emerged from China in the late 2019 and in 2020 in rest of the world definitely changed the lives of everyone. Amidst the news of deaths due to COVID 19, few other matters also came to highlight regarding how women are treated online. It is true that even before the lockdown, same things have been taking place for many years, but the lockdown has given the opportunity to ponder about them more extensively. Just because, they are born as women , do the society gets the right to abuse them in multiple ways. Sometimes the religion adds to more concerns. Woman and too Muslim is an added disadvantage in the democratic egalitarian society. This paper highlights few of the instances where women have been subjected to violations of their human rights over the past few years on online platforms. They have been questioned for their dressing, their acting choices, their expression of views, relationships etc. It is hoped that a positive change in the minds of people takes place so that equality may enjoyed by everyone in the society, irrespective of the biological, social, economic and other differences.
