Authored by a pioneer of the contemporary women`s rights movement in India, this book combines insights gathered from a deep engagement with the lives and coping strategies of ordinary women. With first hand knowledge of the workings of legislation and the law enforcement machinery in India, the author analyses why laws enacted for the ostensible purpose of strengthening women`s rights end up producing such dismal results.
