Law and Gender Inequality maps the issue of gender and law reform upon a broad canvas of history and politics, and explores strategies which could safeguard women's rights within India's sphere of complex social and political boundaries. Written in a lucid style, this book provides an invaluable analysis of the current trends of the debate on the Uniform Civil Code and goes on to expose the communal undertones of some recent judicial pronouncements. The author brings the focus of this debate to the central issue - that of arresting the trend of destitution and consequential impoverishment of Indian women from all religious communities.
