ABSTRACT This research article investigates the intersection of witchcraft accusations and sex education in India, analysing the challenges, implications, and opportunities for addressing these complex issues. Witchcraft accusations, deeply rooted in superstitions and cultural beliefs, often target marginalised individuals, particularly women, leading to social ostracization, violence, and human rights violations. Comprehensive sex education, on the other hand, aims to empower individuals with accurate information on sexual and reproductive health, challenging harmful beliefs and promoting gender equality. However, the intersection of these two phenomena presents unique challenges and opportunities for education, advocacy, and community engagement in addressing superstitions, promoting human rights, and fostering inclusive societies. Through an interdisciplinary lens drawing from sociology, anthropology, gender studies, and education, this research article examines the dynamics of witchcraft accusations and sex education in India, highlighting the need for comprehensive approaches that address cultural beliefs, social norms, and systemic inequalities. By exploring policy analyses, and community-based initiatives, this article offers insights into the complexities of navigating the intersection of witchcraft accusations and sex education and proposes strategies for promoting education, awareness, and empowerment in addressing these intertwined issues.
