WOMEN, LAW AND HUMAN RIGHTS: AN INDIAN PERSPECTIVE
– Published by Centre for Human Rights
Research has always been an integral part of the curriculum of a law student and there is no end to the amount of research and literature one can contribute to the field. The Centre for Human Rights, since its inception, has been at the forefront in contributing to research on the various human rights issues and exploring different dimensions in the field.
As part of its annual flagship event – CONVERSE’19, a two-day national seminar on the theme, “Women Right issues in India”, the Centre has successfully culminated the contributions from eminent legal luminaries, research scholars, professors, and students in the form of a book titled, “Women, Law and Human Rights: An Indian Perspective.” The book incorporates 22 diverse papers reflecting the harsh realities of our society thereby giving a new perspective of some of the existing human rights issues women are subjected to. Women, for centuries, have been struggling to get their due share of rights and to freely exercise them. Women are subjected to a grave violation of Human Rights in most parts of the country and such violations emerge not only from strangers but also from within the four walls of the room. These include articles on dower, honor killing, marital rape, trafficking, domestic violence, cyberbullying, and many more sensitive issues surrounding the female gentry across the nation. An attempt has been made by the authors to put forth feasible solutions to the problems faced by women in India. The book is edited by Prof. (Dr.) Sarfaraz Ahmed Khan, ex-Director, Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad, and Mr. Ahmar Afaq, Assistant Professor, ex-Head – Centre for Human Rights, SLS-H, with the help of Members of the Centre. The book is published by Asia Law House and is available for purchase across the nation at Asia Law House outlets.
