About this Item

Contents: 1. Rights, law and feminist politics: rethinking our practice/ Nivedita Menon. 2. Some reflections on women and health under the law/ Geeta Ramaseshan. 3. Women and institutionalization/Usha Ramanathan. 4. Violence against women: review of recent enactments/Flavia Agnes. Seminar proceedings. Summary of recommendations. Agenda. Index. "In the early years of post-Independence India, the role of law and legal reforms in ensuring greater gender justice in society was perceived as non-ambivalent and positive. The picture is no longer so clear cut. Analysis of recent experience suggests that in the hands of a patriarchal state machinery, legislation, can indeed reinforce the social subjugation of women. This collection of papers which was originally presented in a national seminar on 'Women and Law' traverses the complex interface of law, tradition and culture to explore the potential of law as an instrument of social engineering. It also opens up new dimensions in the legal discourse on gender such as in the area of women's health and institutionalisation of women.". Bookseller Inventory # 7340

About this title


Reprint of 1998 edition. Papers make a case that most legislations are not gender specific; lack of social awareness in respect of the need for legal reforms beneficial to women; limited vision in these matters which affects the law and its interpretation, the contradiction where modern legal and judicial systems are prone to less flexible than the ancient ones; low levels of judicial activism; and need for the mechanism to infuse responsiveness and accountability in the state/non-state institutions.
