Female Foeticide
D.K. DixitT. Sharma
“There will be no generation of great men untill there has been a generation of free women of free mothers”. In Indian society, female foeticide has emerged as a burning social problem during the last few years. The girl child in India is treated right from her birth as an additional burden, an extra mouth to feed, aliability and another man’s property. The increasing imbalance between men and women is leading to many crimes. Women who constitute half a human population have been discriminated, harassed and exploited. In our country a girl is worshiped as a Devi on one hand and denied his existence on the other as if she has no right to live. Time has perhaps come for us to get rid to male enauvinism and treat children as gift of nature regardless of their gender. It is warned to those who prefer male child over female child, just for the sake of continuace of their family. There is not far off when their son will have to remain unmarried as they would not find brides. Girl child and women in India are the most vulnerable to discrimination and deprivation. The general thinking of parents is they expect sons but not daughters to provide financial and emotional care, especially in their old age, sons add to family wealth and property while daughters droin it through dowries. Son continue the family lineage while daughters are married away to another household. Son perform important Religious roles, and sons defend and exercise the family’s power while daughters have to be defended and protected creating a perceived burden on the household. The advancement of medical technology changed the fate of unborn child and posed threat to its life, particularly to the life of female child in the form of foetus. The papers presented in this book explain the problem of female foeticide in India. This book makes a path breaking contribution in this direction. It shows the major issues which highlight the problem of female foeticide. This book will be highly useful to the students of sociology, medical, family counsellor and all those persons dealing with the problem of female child. ..more

Adolescent Girls: Awareness, Rights and Reproductive Health
D. K. NarangN. ChhabraK. Koradia
The basic approach of this book has been shaped by our own research, professional and personal experience as teachers and researchers. We aimed for a text that includes complexities of adolescent age intervention which will be relevant and useful in bridging a gap between theory and research on adolescent’s lives. Proper knowledge imparted during adolescent age has positive impact on the adolescent’s development than at any other time in life. It is imperative to maximize both the amount and quality of knowledge that adolescents receive which will ensure a strong foundation for future learning. The text approaches adolescents as a comprehensive, integrated experience, one that takes place through their perception rather than through a formal adult directed approach. The need for parents, caretakers, teachers, who can integrate nature and education, using adolescent’s knowledge and perception as the integrators is also highlighted. The text focuses on the awareness needs of adolescents for their reproductive health. Expanded and updated discussions on the sexual issues, rights, current research studies on the impact of intervention on the knowledge and perception have been dealt. The intervention package is prepared which is suitable to the immediate environment, culture, education and age of adolescent girls. It can be useful for training of health workers, teachers and participation of parents. In addition, the content of book highlights the interacting contribution of biology to the development of adolescent girls, explains how the intervention process helps adolescents to utilize reproductive rights for their well being. ..more

Crime Against Women
R. A. P. Singh
In the men’s world women have exclusive existence. But this is a new perception. And the exclusive space is not only claimed, it is being acquired. Post-Modernity notion of equity is at the top of the feminist agenda. Apart from this equity programming, our concern is not less important if we take in to account which is popularly known as crime against women. Is it different from crime against men? Men commit crime against men but men look at women as a soft target, not only outside home and beyond, no wonder within home itself. Women are exploited intimately. This book addresses macro sensitivity plus micro manifestation. With crime perspective the book is based on integral approach moving simultaneously towards rural and urban regions, higher and lower segments of women; those enjoying campus and those working in the field, those who are working in the office and those who are house-wives, those who are wage workers, those who are daughters and those who are daughter-in-laws. This provides ample raw data and direction for fresh research. ..more

Rural Women and Their Quality of Life
S. Bhattacharjee
There is no absolute standard of living that is universally accepted although the people living in western capitalist societies are often considered to enjoy a higher quality of life. “Quality of life”, however, varies in time, space and culture. What is better in one culture may not be so in another. People’s desires, expectations in material and economic life as well as preceptions of good life vary across cultures. Good health, wealth, high political power and education may not always be the only criteria for a better “quality of life”. Prevailing social norms, cultural ideologies, and personal values may also influence an individual’s “quality of life”. This book, “Rural Women and their Quality of Life” is a comprehensive and most valuable document on the subject. An empirical investigation into the life-situations of rural women belonging to the different communities viz. Caste Hindus, Muslims and Santals with distinct socio-cultural practices and ideologies; and critical notes on their “quality of life” in objective as well as subjective terms have been presented in this publication. The power, priviledges and autonomy that the women enjoy in the public domain are, however, used not to form a separate world of women but to reinforce their community life. The world of women of all the communities in the villages mentioned in this book is primarily centred around their household, family and lineage. This publication will serve the interest of teachers, researchers, students of sociology; as well as administrators, planners and social workers." ..more

Indian Widows : Coping Style, Mental Health and Personal Adjustment
Manju MehtaUsha KulshreshtaRashmi Chowdhry
Bereavement, especially the loss of spouse, has a severe impact on the psychological and social well-being of women. Loss of spouse has a strong impact on their personal and social adjustment, health, and life satisfaction. In the Indian social scenario, where widows are excluded from full participation in society and have to perform many rituals, the condition of widows becomes all the more miserable. The upliftment of widows is one of the priority areas under women empowerment for both governmental and social agencies. In such a scenario, to understand the psycho-dynamics of widowhood is of great importance. The present book is an attempt in this direction with special focus on middle aged educated widows, a relatively less attended section of widows. An attempt is made to see the effect of widowhood on repression-sensitisation tendency, ways of coping, mental health, and personal adjustment. The book also includes a research study to narrate the effects, scientifically, on working as well as non-working widows. An effort is being made to compare working and non-working married women. The book provides some valuable hints for social planners and policy makers for developing strategies and tactics for helping widows in their readjustment. It is useful for counselors, family members, well-wishers and all those who are concerned with the welfare and upliftment of widows. ..more

Women and Leadership
N. Kulkarni
Despite being relegated to the background since time immemorial, women have often broken the barriers of male domination and attained leadership positions on the basis of their own merit and determination. Yet, studies on the trends and factors that enabled them to do so were neglected. Gender bias took the upper hand and in-depth research on their leadership roles was ignored. Many reasons were attributed to the lack of research in this field of female human endeavour. This book takes up the entire spectrum of women and the leadership roles they have performed, sometimes with commendable results, in different parts of the world. Their struggles to reach the top, the hurdles they had to cross and the obstacles that were put in their way have been delineated with clarity and in simple, easy-to-understand language. The various fields that they have conquered and the important roles that they now play in what was exclusively the male domain are explained and discussed in full detail. The chapters have been chosen with care to ensure that as wide a perspective is placed before the reader. They include: ¨ Women and Leadership ¨ Gender, Leadership and Legislatures ¨ Components of Integrative Leadership ¨ Constraints of Leadership ¨ Vision of Integrative Leadership ¨ Origins of Different Committee Styles ¨ Women as Journalists ¨ Feminists and Feminism in the News ¨ Vision of Leadership in Traditional & Feminine Approaches ¨ Leadership Secrets of Elizabeth I ¨ Women Leadership in Asia This book will be of definite interest to all those interested in the development of women down the ages and teachers, students and researchers in women’s studies. ..more

Women in World Journalism
M.L. Jena
News media produced by, for and about women have long been crucial mechanisms by which women can define the alternative visions of womanhood and cultivate new socio-political landscapes. Alternative news media advocated versions of women’s social, political, and cultural roles that were quite different from those proposed by or imposed by mainstream media. Such media have enabled women to exchange and share news unlikely to find a home in mainstream media institutions and to develop journalistic and media skills. This book describes the entry of women into journalism, their struggles to gain equality and their determined efforts to ensure that their voice too was heard. Women journalists all over the world more or less face the same kind of problem initially-the resistance to their entry by their male colleagues. The chapters indicate the status of women journalists today and how they attained it. • Women Journalists • Problems of Women Journalists • Women and Newsroom Values • Women’s Ideas in the Media • Women in Print Journalism • Women Journalists and the Gender Tag • Shattering the Glass Ceiling • Women Reporters in Wartime • New Trends in Media: Impact on Women • Women in Broadcasting and the Net • Women in the Media The book will be useful for students, teachers and researchers in journalism and all other dimensions of the mass media and mass communications. ..more

Women in Developing Countries
P. Iyer
It is an established fact that women are biologically stronger than their male counterparts enabling them to enjoy a higher life expectancy. This is seen in the statistics of the developed world where the sex differential is nearly seven years. However, in developing countries the health status of women is not so bright and the differential can be as low as two years and sometimes even in the minus. The reason for this is mainly their high rates of mortality in childhood and at child-bearing ages. Social customs and tradition places them at a lower level than males; in some countries they eat only when the men and boys have finished. Female mortality rates in some of the developing countries can be higher than 30 to 50 per cent of males. This book discusses the status and living conditions of women in developing countries in all its aspects and dimensions and provides a clear picture of the miseries they have to endure because of their sex. The chapters include: · Women and Work in Developing Nations · Women, Technology and the Development Process · Women’s Nutrition through the Life Cycle · Violence Against Women · Women’s Mental Health · Indian Women’s Participation in Science and Engineering · Women’s Struggles in Bangladesh · Women in Pakistan · Women’s Movement in the Philippines · Women’s Movement in Kenya · Women and Technology Resources for Future ..more

Raj KumarRameshwari Devi Romila Pruthi
This book is the historical documentation of the women who braved the colonial rulers of India and committed themselves to the fight for the freedom of the country. They were focused on only one goal-the freedom of the country. Annie Besant, Sarojini Naidu, Aruna Asaf Ali, Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, Madame Bhikaji Cama and Margaret Cousins, who were among the early pioneers of the women's nationalist movement in India, inspired thousands of other women, and also men, to take up cudgels against the British. Their fight was for freedom and in this historic struggle, the role of women in the nationalist movement cannot be underplayed. The editors have conducted intensive research in archival records and historical documents to present a living record of the activities of the brave women who participated in the nationalist movement. They have sifted through hundreds of papers and documents to bring their story to life so that it could be an inspiring saga for the youth of later generations who would be living in a country faced with problems of a different nature and give themthe courage and fortitude to overcome and fight them. This book will be of special interest to those who wish to know more about the people who worked towads the freedomof the country and brought it to a successful culmination.

Women, Conflict-Resolution and Culture :Gandhian Perspective
Naresh Dadhich
BRANDED as the 'Second-Sex' since time immemorial, women have always been degraded to a secondary role in society. However, with the spread of education and awareness, conflicts came into being, often leading to mass public agitations and displays of anger and wrath. Some of them related to female emancipation, franchise rights, equality and equal opportunities to work and livelihood. This book has been planned against this background, endeavouring to explain the rise of women's conflicts and attempts to resolve them in terms of contemporary social and political theory. Such an attempt has been long overdue as the complexities of the culture and society of modern times has led to more tensions between the sexes than a sense of stability. Mahatma Gandhi had realised the importance of women power and their role in shaping the path of history and progress. He spared no effort to drive home the fact that women were equal in all respects to men and could shoulder responsibilities with equal skill and capability. The contributors to this volume have dealt at length with various aspects of Gandhian thought in this respect, especially his concern for women, conflict resolution and culture and have approached the subject with academic enthusiasm. There is no doubt that this book will be useful for students, researchers and teachers of Political Science, History, Philosophy, Sociology,Gandhian Thought and Peace and Women's Studies. ..more

No reading of India's struggle for freedom can be complete without knowing the role of Sister Nivedita, the Irish revolutionary who took up the cause of India's independence. Highly religious-minded, she was drawn to Swami Vivekananda and the teachings of the Ramakrishna Mission and gave up the land of her birth to become a brahmacharin--a full fledged follower of the Swami. However, she gave this up too, as the rules of the Mission prohibited political activity and her urge to fight for the freedomof the country got the better of her. Despite being a foreigner in an alien land, she pleaded vigorously for the maintenance of Indian traditions and customs and believed that the emancipation of women was necessary if India was to attain freedom and become a sovereign entity in the comity of nations. Her transformation from a 'Britisher' to an Indian was complete. This book brings forth the variety and multi-faceted character of Sister Nivedita and her vigorous role in the freedom struggle. It delineates how a woman,from a foreign land, crossed the ocean to take up permanent residence in this country and imbibedthe rich heritage of India.How she was moved by the plight of her sisters and attempted to bring them out of the darkness of superstition and ignorance into the mainstream of modern society. Academicians, students and teachers of History and Political Science will find this book of immense interest as also the general reader interested in knowing about the people who participated in the country's fight for freedom. ..more

Status of Indian Women
Sushil Kumar Goel
Access to education is not only a basic human right; it is a key to social progress. An all-round development of women has become an important subject of study in the present time. Woman is the pivot of a family, around which revolve the entire activities of men and children. She is responsible for a family’s health, happiness and prosperity. Women, who are home makers, bring a new being into the world. If she is happy & well adjusted, and competent to make strategic life choices, the whole world is a beautiful place to live in. Empowerment, organization and mobilization of women have emerged as pre-requisites for elevating the status of women in society. Empowerment of women encompasses many other aspects in addition to their economic self-sufficiency. It entails education, inculcating self-confidence and ability to take decisions about their own lives. The book on “Status of Indian Women” contains 16 chapters relating to various conceptual and qualitative issues such as women’s development and education, women, health, meal planning, bride burning, eve-teasing, violence, issues and concerns for women with disabilities, stress of working women, qualities and skills of women leadership etc. This book is very informative, intellectually stimulating and interesting. This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed./M.Ed./Diploma in Special Education/M.A. Psychology/M.A. Education/MSW/M.Sc. Child Development /M.A. Women’s Studies/M.A. Sociology, M Phil Women’s Studies /Diploma students in all Indian Universities. ..more

Empowerment of Indian Women
Sushil Kumar Goel
At present the great task before us is the task of nation building. This task cannot be achieved unless the women of our society share the work in an effective manner. The essential and indispensable contribution of the womenfolk can be expected only when they received qualitative education, employment & training and they got enriched, enlightened and empowered. Thus, education is essential to empower the women. The ultimate solution to wipe out the crimes against women is to empower them through education. Women empowerment aims at eliminating discrimination and challenging gender inequality. A high standard of learning and culture was reached by Indian women during the Vedic age. The idea of Indian civilization continued to flourish as India transcended its journey from Ancient to Medieval to Modern times. The book on “Empowerment of Indian Women” contains 9 chapters relating to various conceptual and qualitative issues on women’s studies. This book is very informative, intellectually stimulating and interesting. The need for such a comprehensive document was always felt in our country but was never fulfilled. With this book, the author has fulfilled this long-felt need by bringing out different aspects and dimensions of women’s studies, particularly in the Indian context. Hopefully, this document will serve as an essential text-cum- reference tool not only for professionals working in the field of education but to the policy planners and administrators as well. It will also be a useful document for the parents, community members and the lay persons. This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed./M.Ed./Diploma in Special Education/M.A. Psychology/M.A. Education/MSW/ M.Sc. Child Development /MA Women’s Studies/ MA Sociology/M Phil Women’s Studies /Diploma students in all Indian Universities. ..more

Rethinking Gender Equality
Anil Kumar Singh Jha
Indian women are born into a socio-cultural fabric steeped in inequality and discrimination. Women are forced to accept their suppression of freedom and lowering of human dignity as a fait accompli. Bridging the gap between an ideology of equality and a reality in which women are discriminated is the need of hour. Rethinking Gender Equality provides a critical analysis of existing gender inequality in Indian society. The book is a humble endeavour to decipher the specific challenges encountered by women in modern Indian society and how do they negotiate traditional norms as they seek to redefine their self-identity and well-being in modern era. The cornerstone of writing this book is to help readers develop their critical thinking about the pertinent issue which affects everyone’s life. This book is divided into six chapters i.e. Unwanted Daughters; Plight of Female Literacy, Reproductive Health; Child Sexual Abuse; Domestic Violence and Human Rights of Women which are based on the latest reliable data to show the ground reality. Rethinking Gender Equality is a veritable treasure trove of data on critical issues related to women. The book is strongly recommended for the students and research scholars of Gender Studies, Sociology, Social Work, Law and other related fields, media personnel, women’s rights activists and policy makers. ..more

Gender Identity and Roles in India : Issues and Challenges
Swati ChakrabortyRushiraj Balkrishna Upadhyay
From primitive times to the contemporary era, we can see that the status and role of women are changing periodically. In that context, there are lots of variations we can find in the gender identity and the human rights awareness. As a matter of fact, masculine power is consider superior in most societies and in that sense women are marginalized in various sector. Women become victims of discrimination from the family to the work place. Here articles and papers from different parts of India describes various views on different themes relating to gender in development. Gender in Development is of utmost importance today in the fields of research and academics. When we converse about Gender we focus on women and their overall development. Women are an important part of the functioning of any society. From family to group, group to region and region to country, women, like men, play important roles in various activities. Even so, women are found to be socio-economically discriminated everywhere. In that context, for the comprehensive development of women, it is a pre requisite to analyse the status and role of them through various aspects such as Education, Health, Politics, etc. Since social science is concerned with facts, it needs to reveal the facts behind the extent of gender development (past and present) in Indian society. The editors have also included human right concepts in the context of gender and development. The book will be of interest to academics, research scholars feminists, social researchers policy-makers and non-governmental organizations alike. ..more

Gifted Children : Identification and Development
M. G. Pillai
Many children are gifted. They possess faculties and abilities much beyond the average for their age-group. Some of them may even be geniuses with exceptional talent. But in most cases, the special talents go unrecognised in the early stages by parents and teachers and the child is left to fend for himself on two fronts. On the one hand, he finds himself an outcaste among his peers for his so-called ‘ superiority’ and on the other he fails to receive the encouragement and extra stimulus he or she needs for the proper development and canalisation of the inherent special talent and skill. This book studies the characteristics that most gifted children exhibit and how to identify and pinpoint them. It enables parents and teachers of such children to put in the extra and correct effort that, administered at the right time, will enable the child to develop his ‘specialness’ along the right lines and ultimately grow into a useful and important member of society. Educators and parents will surely find this book useful. It will prevent them from neglecting a gifted child and, vice versa, stop them from piling on pressure to produce results on children who just do not have the aptitude or talent to be exceptional, and are just average. Most important, a study of this book will prevent useful talent and skills in children from languishing or developing into frustration because of lack of identification and consequent neglect. ..more

Women and the Indian Freedom Struggle
RajkumarRameshwari DeviRomila Pruthi
Breast to breast and shoulder to shoulder, the women of India have fought valiantly in the roughest and toughest struggle for national honour and independence from centuries immemorial, sword in hand, they have fought afoot and on horseback in the thickest of the battle. The sacrifices of the women’s form a golden page of Indian History. There are few works of women’s participation in the Nationalist movement. Important studies on the National Movement mostly lack proper examination of women’s participation in the freedom struggle.Contributions of the workers, peasants and even tribal have now found adequate coverage in the nationalist historiography. But one searches in vain for proper study of women’s participation in nationalist historiography. It is time to examine this subject and its contribution to the freedom movement in proper historical perspective. A study of the women covered in this series brings to light very clearly that without participation of women our struggle would have lacked its full vigour. There were quite a few aspects of the struggle which women could successfully manage where man would have failed. Some of the great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi have paid glowing tributes to the women and their contribution to the freedom struggle. This study we, therefore, hope will be a tribute to the immense work that these great women have accomplished. We hope that it would serve as repository not only to historians, teachers, students, researchers and administrators but also to the masses. ..more

Womens Movement and Freedom Struggle
RajkumarRameshwari DeviRomila Pruthi
During Vedic times, women had full equality in all spheres with men. However, over time, the social system became maleoriented for various reasons, and women found themselves subjugated to the will of the men in the family. During India’s struggle for freedom from colonial rule, the fight for the emancipation of women gained momentum. Many women came to be accepted as great patriots and freedom fighters in there own right. They began to organise themselves to fight for their rights and the government came to recognise that it could no longer ignore their demand for equality. The list of women who contributed to the movement for equality is unlimited. To name just a few, Sarojini Naidu, Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit, Aruna Asaf Ali and Rajkumari Amrit Kaur took up the fight on several fronts. This book is an attempt to focus on the long and arduous struggle by women for their rights and for equality. That they were successful to a large extent is the fact that a woman even became the Prime Minister of India. Students of history, teachers, gender activists and all those interested in the movement that led to the liberation and emancipation of women in India will find this book not only useful for its archival material but also because of the spotlight it places on their efforts. ..more

Tribal Girls : Aspiration, Achievement and Frustration
Damina Choudhary
Indian society at large is hierarchical, stratified and deficient in vertical mobility. As such, several schemes of tribal development are not making the desired headway despite the clamour by educational planners and politicians. After Independence, several government and non- government agencies have come forward to shoulder this responsibility with adequate budgetary provisions but yet the graph of education, especially among tribal girls, fails to show a significant rise. The problem needs a fresh look and the present book is a welcome step in this direction. It makes a comparative study of tribal and non-tribal girls reading in the same school, their performance and their aspirations on standardised tests. The author has successfully laid bare the threads of pressure that play a significant role in fanning the aspirations of girl students and has unravelled the various layers of frustration when they find that their aspirations are out of their normal reach. This cycle of aspirations and frustration is perceptible in both sections of girls though it is mild among tribal girls. The book is, no doubt, a comparative study of the aspiration and frustration among tribal and non-tribal girls and the findings will be useful and beneficial in planning educational programmes. Educationists, psychologists, policy planners, teachers, NGOs and all those having an interest in tribal affairs and development will surely find it helpful and gain a rare insight into the mental make up of tribal girl students and their non tribal counterparts. ..more

Handbook of Sociology
Leena Parmar
A society, and consequently, a nation, cannot be strong and self-reliant unless it continuously studies itself, identifies its weaknesses, traces its roots, and tries to weed out any detrimental factors that may be creeping into it, obviously. History has many instances of great civilisations crumbling into the sands of oblivion because their societies could not overcome the termites of decadence that ate through the social fabric. Once society falls, a nation falls and once a nation falls, civilisations disappear. This book is a straight and simple attempt to delve into society; the society as it exists today. Social evils and social ills have not only to be contained, they have to be wiped out. But to do that, one must “know”. This is just one small effort at attaining that “know”, or wisdom, in more appropriate parlance. The coverage includes diverse aspects of society like the formation of social groups, how culture influences them, the role of a unified family, the stratification of the community and also how social control and education raises the level of a community or society. ..more

Women and Problems of Gender Discrimination
H. C. UpretiNandini Upreti
This book attempts to highlight the struggle of Indian women. Many of them face unequal relationships throughout their life, from family to polity, still the level of consciousness about these disparities varies according to their socio-economic background. Educated urban employed women are found to be more conscious about socio-economic inequalities. They have been the major beneficiaries of the development process. While illiterate poor rural women and slum dwellers have their own struggle against socio-economic deprivations, it seems that women from sub-urban groups have by and large been marginalised by the development process. After independence, successive governments have passed social legislation to control social evils, yet social customs and behaviour responsible for these evils have not changed significantly. Social legislation equipped the government to fight against females infanticide, child marriage, dowry harassment and widow burning; but they too have failed to change prevalent customs, superstitions and social taboos, and these practices by and large remain and integral part of Indian social behaviour. Along with social legislation, an well-organised mass movement is also required to change the Indian mindset. Universal suffrage and political participation have so far played a limited role in improving the socio – economic status of marginalised women. This volume will motivate students and researchers to make serious efforts to understand issues and problems being confronted by women at different levels of Indian society. ..more

Womens Status and Social Change
Shakuntala Devi
A Frenchman once wrote that the best way to judge the position of a nation was to find out the status of its women. In recent years, women in India have broken free of the traditional image that kept them rooted in the past and joined hands with modernity if different walks of life. Today, they have made good politically and in other departments of national life and human activity. Our Statute Books contain many a legislation that has rid them of several legal shackles and thus helped to raise their status. They have been given the chance to develop according to their own ability and genius and many of them have taken advantage of the new opportunities and thus demonstrated afresh their inner worth. This book shows and analyses the social changes that have come about consequent to the new role of women and how they have conquered (if that is the word) it. It will be a source of enlightenment to those who wish to discover the new mindset that our women have acquired to keep pace with the social challenges that arose during the latter half of the twentieth century and how they are preparing to face the twenty-first. ..more

Human Rights of Women
P. Iyer
The last century saw a great leap forward in the struggle for women’s human rights. In many countries women won the right to take part in government, though in some, they did not. Many women acquired an economic independence and social status unthinkable a hundred years earlier. A few countries have adopted constitutions or legislation banning discrimination on the grounds of gender. But women are still treated as second-class citizens all over the world. By the end of the last century, women comprised two-thirds of the world’s one million illiterate people. Women continue to bear the double burden of work and childcare, to own and earn less than men, and to be excluded from making decisions over their own bodies. Women are struggling to help their families and communities survive poverty and armed conflict. And in many countries, they still contend with violence in the family, in the community and from the government. The chapters in this book cover the subject comprehensively. They are: • How women’s Human Rights Evolved • The Definition of Women’s Rights • Women’s Human Rights and Violence • Work and Women’s Human Rights • Human Rights Incorporates Crimes Against Women • Gender in Human Rights Programmes • Human Rights of Immigrant Youth • Women’s Rights and Democracy • Human Rights Problem of the Girl Child • Women Behind Bars • Human Rights of Muslim Women • Role of Grassroots Organisations This book will be useful for all researchers and teachers in the field of political science, women’s studies and human rights. ..more

Violence Against Women
M. Chatterjee
Violence against women is a burning topic of the day as instances of the continuation of this barbaric practice flow in from various parts of the world. Despite the massive progress in human activity and the development of human civilisation to a level never attained in the past, violence against women in some form or the other continues. Laws exist to prevent it and also lay down stringent punishment for the culprits. Yet, most of them go scot-free and rarely are they punished. This book traces the treatment of women over the centuries and the treatment meted out to them by their male counterparts. It analyses the philosophy and the motivations behind such treatment and explains in vivid detail the sordid behaviour they are exposed to. A comprehensive overview of the problem is presented in the chapters that include: ¨ Women, Power and Violence ¨ Violence Against Women ¨ Battered Women and Violent Men ¨ Mental Thinking of Abused Women ¨ Women Survivors of Domestic Violence as Service Users ¨ Rivalry, Rape and Manhood ¨ Breaking the Silence in Literacy ¨ Bridging the Divide Between Literacy and Therapy ¨ Violence, Silence and the Memory of Witches ¨ Challenging the Justice System for Women ¨ Innovation and Social Change for Women Welfare Students, researchers and teachers of Sociology, Psychology and Women’s Studies will find this book of immense value in the pursuit of their own work in these fields. ..more

Women’s Empowerment in India
S. NayakJ. Nair
This book traces the evolution of Indian women through the mists of history to the present efforts to empower them and give them their rightful place in society. Attempts in this direction have not been dramatic or aggressive but rather after the old Indian fashion of combining chance with continuity. It was Gandhiji who brought a dramatic chance among our women, when at his bidding they came out in large numbers from the shelter of their homes to take their part in the struggle for India's freedom. Once the old shackles were removed, it was no longer possible to replace them in the same way. Attempts were no doubt made to go back, but they were bound to fail. This book brings much information, which will enlighten the reader's mind and give him and idea of what our women have done and are doing. ..more

Issues in Feminism
Leela Desai
Till about the middle of the seventeenth century, it was the universal assumption that women belonged to the home as wives and mothers. Their entire life was devoted to the home and they remained within its confines. They had no rights over property; no control over inheritance, no control over custody, and no right to bring a civil suit. They did not even have the right to vote. However, with the advent of the Industrial Revolution, and other historical circumstances, the isolation of women in the domestic sphere began to erode. The rights that they had been deprived of became central issues in the nineteenth century women’s rights movement. This book not only delineates those rights but also discusses those issues that became part and parcel of vigorous debates in modern feminist theory. Each issue has been articulated, explained, discussed in detail and then put in the right perspective of the modern woman who stands shoulder to shoulder with her male counterpart and equal in all respects. The chapters say it all. They include Feminism and Marxism; Liberal Feminism; Cultural Feminism; Feminism and Romanticism; Pornography, Sex Discrimination and Women; Feminism and Freudianism; and Feminism and Postmodernism. The in-depth evaluation of each issue and the detail with which logical conclusions have been drawn add a new dimension to the entire concept of feminism. General readers and teachers, students and researchers in Women’s Studies and Sociology will find this book of great help. They will not only be able to get a better and deeper insight into the various issues that confronted, and still confront in some measure, the status of women in various parts of the world, but will also be able to enlarge their own viewpoints on the subject. ..more

Feminism and Its Strategies
Leela Desai
THE feminism that we know today has its roots in Western society. Gaining a foothold after the First World War, it dveloped momentum during the days of the Great Depression and progressed still further after the Second World War. The women's liberation movement took shape in the United States of America and every shade of feminist activity was reflected in it. The concept is still prevalent strongly in the U.S.A. and Britain. This book analyses the various aspects of feminism, and its relation with politics, capitalism,Marxism, etc. Chapter I provides a Marxist Feminist Analysis, Chapter II discusses issues like Femininity, Masculinity and Sexual Practice, while Chapter III probes the ideology of Feminismand the Culture of Gender in various societies. Chapter IV takes up the issue of Gender and Class in the Educational System and Chapter V relates Marxism with Gender and the Division of Labour. Chapter VI discusses Women's Oppression and the Family while Chapter VII, the last, discusses Capitalism and Women's Liberation. These chapters, thus, provide a deep analysis of the issues involved in feminismand feminist movements. This book will surely prove useful to sociologists, students of feminist sociology and those interested in learning more about the development of feminism and its role in the march of civilisation and society. ..more
