Edited by Kalpana Kannabiran, this collection of 11 essays by eminent lawyers, activists and scholars seeks to ‘map the field of women and law from an interdisciplinary perspective’ and, in the process, puts forth on paper the continuing denial of justice to women under the Indian legal system. By painstakingly recording the process of every law taking shape, complete with cases and facts, they have documented a history that would otherwise have been ignored.
Women and Law is a [volume] aiming at women that have experienced encounters with the Indian Law...the volume has 11 chapters that raise heated questions and critically challenge the social institutions by providing detailed evidence of specific cases, judicial precedent, trails and stories of victims.
... The authors have also raised pertinent questions on gender justice often sought to be swept under the carpet by the system….apart from being a treasure-trove on gender justice, also offers plausible answers to a host of questions on women and law, without confounding us with legal jargon. That makes it a winner, hands down.
