Mohini Chatterjee (Author)

For centuries, women had been subjugated by the male of the species and every effort was made, through social customs and behaviour, to ensure that she did not look beyond the four walls of hearth and kept as such. But two centuries ago, with the advent of the Industrial Revolution and two world wars in which a large number of women took up jobs hat were formerly the exclusive domain of man, they began to assert themselves. The movement began in the West, and gradually spread to all parts of the world. This book is an attempt to present the entire kaledoscope of women’s human right and show how it all began. Its chapters cover Women in Indian society, Origin and Developmetn of women’s Human Rights, their Rights in Public and Private System, Sexual Orientation and the Legal Impact of Law, HIV, AIDS and Human Rights, International Law and Women’s Rights and Rights of Women in Islamic Society. This book will be of immense value to all those interested in Women’s Studies and Sociology, whether they are teachers, students and researchers, and even the general reader, who will find it interesting to read about how women awakened to their rights and ultimately won them in the face of heavy odds.
