Descripción

The very notion of woman submissiveness, spontaneous, trained or socially conditioned, has triggered off a range of varied shades of violence around her in the form of domestic violence, female foeticide, female infanticide, rape, acid attacks, denial of parliamentary participation and so on. Through this book, which is a collection of essays on women-related issues, the author has sought to highlight the images of women as they see them. The multiple ways and gender bias as seen through the eyes of women. Is the domestic violence law really a boon for women? Is a fair skin one?s only guarantee to get a job of choice? Should a rapist be pardoned for his heinous crime if he offers to marry the victim, and will it be justice for the girl/woman who was robbed of her honour and treated merely as a commodity? While the male-dominated feudal society discusses things from a traditional viewpoint, these essays try to touch upon what impact these incidents produce on suffering women. The central theme is why should she be treated as a commodity. Why is she defied to be commodified? Why can?t society treat her as equal? Printed Pages: 314. N° de ref. de la librería 47340
