Women can use cyberspace to exercise their rights, from obtaining information to freely and anonymously expressing themselves. Cyber-crime, on the other hand, is a worldwide problem, and women are the most vulnerable victims of this new kind of crime. Women’s vulnerability and safety are among the most serious problems of any criminal or penal legislation, yet women remain defenceless in cyberspace. Cybercrime against women is at an all-time high, and it might represent a grave danger to an individual’s overall security. Users may share material in the form of photos, text, videos, and audio over the World Wide Web. Women are especially harmed by the widespread distribution of such information. There have been several incidents in recent years of women getting unsolicited email that includes rude and abusive language.

Keywords: Cyber offences, Women, Cyber crime, Cyber security, Judicial response to Cyber crime.
