Socio-Legal Status Of Woman In India
The subject. ?The Position of Women in Society? has become very important lately. Though the secondary status of women has constantly invited the philosophers? and sociologists? wrathsince centuries. The present times seem most appropriate to highlight sociological problems because this is the age of communication and the aspiration for an egalitarian society is at its peak, despite formidable handicaps. Women from almost 50 percent of the population and to imagine and advanced society without the advancement of women would be anything but wise. This book is just another bid to understand women?s position in a socio-legal context. Since law is an instrument to bring about the social change, this makes the study socio-legal as we study the various laws enacted to bring about the necessary change. A small portion of the book is devoted to the Western aspects which gives it a comparative touch. The rest of thebook takes up the Indian position; a brief history, constitutional framework and the laws enacted for women. How far these laws have succeeded in ameliorating women?s condition, is for the reader to assess.
