Summary

This book focuses on women’s human rights in India. Drawing on case studies, it provides a clear overview of the key sources of gender and rights in the country. Further, it contextualizes women’s rights at the critical intersection of caste, religion, and class, and analyses barriers to the realization of women’s human rights in practice. It also develops strategies for moving forward towards greater recognition, protection, promotion and fulfilment of women’s human rights in India.  

Drawing on critical pedagogical tools to analyse groundbreaking court cases, this book will be a key text in human rights studies. It will be indispensable to students, scholars, and researchers of gender studies, sociology, law, and human rights.
