Abstract:

"This book critically examines domestic violence law in India. It focuses on women's experiences and perspectives as victims and litigants, with regard to accessibility to law and justice. It also reflects on the manner in which the legal process reproduces gender hierarchies. This volume analyses the legal framework from a gender perspective to pinpoint the inherent stereotypes, prejudices and discriminatory practices that come into play while interpreting the law. It also Includes in-depth interviews and case studies, and explores critical themes such as marriage, rights, family, violence, property and the state. Moreover, it presents alternatives beyond the domain of law, such as qualitative medical care and legal aid facilities, shelter homes, short stay homes, child care facilities, and economic and social security provisions to survivors. Drawing on extensive testimonies and ethnographic studies situated in a theoretical framework of law, this book will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of law, gender, human rights, women's studies, sociology and social anthropology, and South Asian studies"--
