Gender Justice

Subhash Chandra Singh (Editor)
Synopsis "The twin issues of sex equality and women's empowerment have become a matter of international concern while gaining prominence in national development efforts. The UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), which has substantial rate of ratification by the nations of the world, signals a new global awareness about the rights of women. Despite the legal victories over the years both at national and international levels, the social, economic and political status of women has shown remarkably little improvement. There is evidence of alarming rate of sexual and physical violence against women throughout the world in the face of legislations.

With contributions from academics, policy-makers and activists working in the field of gender studies, this valuable book brings together a range of perspectives concerning the causes of and solution to the problem of gender injustices and gender mainstreaming in India and other developing countries. This book will encourage policy-makers, women's rights activists and academicians, as well as students of law, sociology, economics, public administration and gender studies to develop a deeper understanding of the context and the current position of women in India. The active engagement of academicians and students with the material covered distinguishes this book from others in the area and makes it a real resource material for researchers and students of law and gender studies."
