Women's rights can be realized more effectively in cyberspace, from accessing information to freely and anonymously expressing themselves. However, cybercrime is a global phenomenon, and women are particularly vulnerable to this new type of crime. The vulnerability and safety of women are two of the most important concerns of any criminal or penal law, but women are still defenseless in cyberspace. Cyber-Crime against women is at an all-time high, and it may pose a serious threat to a person's overall security. The World Wide Web enables users to share information in the form of text, images, videos, and sounds. The widespread distribution of such content is especially harmful to women. There have been numerous reports in recent years of women receiving unsolicited emails containing obscene and obnoxious language. Women have been severely victimized in cyberspace, and cybercrime against women is on the rise. Some perpetrators attempt to defame women by sending obscene emails, stalking women through chat rooms, websites, and other means, creating pornographic videos in which women are depicted in compromising positions, often without their consent, spoofing emails, morphing images for pornographic content, and so on. Sex offenders look for their victims on social networking sites as well as job or marriage websites, where people post their personal information for better prospects. Women have become more vulnerable to cybercrime as a result of the disclosure of personal information. It is clear that female victimization leads to cybercrime and vice versa.
