What she meant was that women, who continued to live in oppression and refused to raise their voices, rarely got the chance to turn their lives around. This paper looks at how well before the racial, caste, and community fault lines were drawn, women were confined to domesticity. As a consequence, all the other divisions of discrimination just added to the oppression that women faced. Even access to Fundamental Rights such as the freedom of speech and expression are made available unequally to women.<br>A lot of the global feminist movements were led by women. There were however, various other protests and movements that were political and social in nature which acquired a feminist colour due to the overwhelming leadership exhibited by women in these cases. These protests have had a tangible and positive impact on the lives of women who fought for these rights and their descendants. This paper aims to study some of these movements that the world has witnessed. The authors then look at the responses of the State. This includes the judicial intervention as well as the legislative responses. The paper concludes with an analysis of the contemporary position of women and glance into the potential future</p> Abhijit B Copyright (c) 2023 Unitedworld Law Journal https://journal.karnavatiuniversity.edu.in/index.php/uwlj/article/view/45 Fri, 08 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0530 A STUDY ON THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENVIRONMENTAL LAW https://journal.karnavatiuniversity.edu.in/index.php/uwlj/article/view/46 <p>The law relating to intellectual property promotes innovation and other human creations. Concomitantly, environmental law aims to protect the environment. Even though intellectual property rights are temporary grants given to the owner, IP has made a noteworthy contribution to addressing environmental issues. Erstwhile, the awareness of the environmental harm caused by a lot of the technology used in manufacturing, agriculture, and transportation has gained impetus, especially in the last twenty years. Other forms of technology, however, can lessen resource waste and reduce pollution. Therefore, the fundamental motto of intellectual property becomes extremely significant in attaining sustainable development. Sustainable development (SD) has environmental sustainability among the four of its pillar, which can be synergized through intellectual property. The relationship between the TRIPS agreement pertaining to intellectual property and environmental law is complex, but there are still deliberations over it. Simultaneously, the relationship among the WTO’s IP agreement and the (CBD) Convention on Biological Diversity has its focal point of in the Committee on Trade and Environment (CTE).<br>One fundamental principle of our economic system is that technological advancement is required to uphold and raise our standard of living, which involves the role of intellectual property and environmental law. Utilizing intellectual property to combat climate change is an area which needs to be promoted to achieve sustainable development. In this patents contribution is quintessential because more innovation will lead to saving resources and reduce pollution, though the issue of increased pollution levels due to innovation can’t be denied.<br>Use of intellectual property to enhance environmental protection, necessitates study into the connections between these two legal disciplines. This paper intends to identify the linkages, relationships, and lacuna between intellectual property and environmental law by adopting normative method of study.</p> Anchal Mittal Aggarwal1 Copyright (c) 2023 Unitedworld Law Journal https://journal.karnavatiuniversity.edu.in/index.php/uwlj/article/view/46 Fri, 08 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0530 case study of mental distress using Greene and Lee’s solution-oriented practice in Myanmar https://journal.karnavatiuniversity.edu.in/index.php/uwlj/article/view/47 <p>This case study analyzes the mental distress of a university student during the pandemic and military coup in Myanmar.

Today, India is limiting its agricultural resources from land, plant varieties, and other biological resources focusing more on improvising the non-agricultural establishments in and around the rural and forest areas. This causes a grave need to focus on the food security issue where the Right to Food is a guaranteed Human Right and Fundamental Right as interpreted under Article 21 of The Constitution of India and International Conventions. While the availability of food to all people is one concern, the food produced going to waste is another concern in combating food insecurity. A major section of India’s population still lives below the poverty line (BPL). Undernourishment and hunger deaths hold attention and priority in the Indian political system. The Right to Food is a Union’s concern. If one looks at the India State Hunger index specifically in the state of Karnataka, it is an alarming concern as it stands at 23.73. This research paper aims to spotlight the key issues and challenges of combating malnutrition and household food security among BPL ration card holders in Karnataka, where 61.33 percent reside in rural areas and 38.67 percent in urban areas. The research paper also proposes to focus on analyzing the lacunae and the need for the administration to foster household food security in concernment to human rights and public health. As ‘poverty breeds poverty,’ Household Food Security is an effort to combat poverty.</p> Kavitha Christo Nelson1, Usha Ravi Copyright (c) 2023 Unitedworld Law Journal https://journal.karnavatiuniversity.edu.in/index.php/uwlj/article/view/48 Fri, 08 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0530 Critical Analysis of Same-sex adoption laws in India https://journal.karnavatiuniversity.edu.in/index.php/uwlj/article/view/49 <p>With the changing scenario in the 21st-century orientation of society is also changing.
