Abstract

The Committee through General Recommendation No. 35 recognizes that discrimination against women is inextricably linked to various factors that affect their lives which includes indigenous status. Further, in order to combat gender-based violence it is vital to acknowledge that while all women are at risk of facing gender-based violence, some women due to their vulnerable position face even greater risk. But, violence against women especially against tribal women that arises due to a host of factors is often overlooked in both social and academic discourse in India.
