About this title


The object of this book is to look into some aspects of law making, policy formulations, and implementation of the constitutional and legal provisions etc. by the post-colonial state in India vis-a-vis gender justice and women "empowerment" and will try to examine the State's perspective on gender relations.This will lead to theorizing the nature and character of the Post-colonial State from a gender perspective. The book will also go into the participation of women in the movement for their rights and the role of women socio-political organizations in the process. While the primary concern of the book will be the post-colonial period, yet, to put the things in the right perspective and to bring the context, it may be necessary to dwell briefly upon the pre-1947 period also (especially the period of 1920 onwards) to understand the working of the post-colonial state in the aftermath of Independence. During the colonial period, the construction of woman as an individual and as a social-familial being in the Gandhian discourse and Nehruvian vision's divergence from it in the post-colonial period were too important to be left out of the scope of this book.
