Women and Law in India

Nomita Aggarwal (Author)
Synopsis This useful and handy compendium, Women and Law in India, offers information about the most frequently asked questions on the subject. While citing the provisions of the Constitution granting equality to women and men, the book carries a lucid commentary on many aspects of gender justice conceptualised and turned into legal enactments during the five decades of India’s history after independence. Laws pertaining to inheritance, labour, human rights, prevention of violence, representation of women in media and several particular matters are shown to have relevance to contemporary lives. Most remarkably, it draws attention not only to the rubrics of the law important for women but also speaks of the role society and institutions can play inpromoting access to law. Comprehensive in scope yet easy to follow, Women and Law in India, is a friendly guide to a complex judicial system. Prepared by the Women’s Studies and Development Centre, University of Delhi, the book is designed as an asset for the intelligent reader as well as the professional practitioner.
