Handbook on Crime Against Women

V P Srivastav (Author)
Synopsis Women constitution almost half of the human population hae been suffering social and economic deprivation and oppression through the millennium all over the world. Improvement in the status of movement has been accepted by the founding fathers of the constitution and subsequently by the government from the very beginning of independent India. Over the year number of social legislations have been passed in favour of women but still we find that the status of women in our society has not achieved the desired standard of course. Law is one of the most effective mediums made for tackling social issues, discrimination and exploitation in society including those operating against women but law alone is not sufficient to achieve the desired results. Several years of work by women’s human rights movements and social activities produced gains in government actions to deter violence against women. Nevertheless, many government actions in response to women are inadequate. Human Rights Watch investigations reveals that, while some governments focuses legislative attention on domestic and sexual violence, such reform is undermined by structural barriers to women’s meaningful access to legal redress and protection from further violence. The book “Handbook On Crime Against Women” not only analyses the status of women in India but also gives the complete view on Sexual wrongs, Divorce and maintenance in distress, Matrimonial cruelty and violence, Trafficking of women, Kidnapping, Infanticide etc. besides suggestions in effective manner. The contents of the book will be of great utility not only for lawmen, scholar and professional persons but also for social scientists and social workers as law and society are inseparably interlinked.
