Women's issues have been a matter of grave concern for a long time but have attracted pointed attention only in the past few decades. Over the years, radical changes have been introduced in the laws pertaining to women, which not only recognize their rights, but also afford protection against exploitation. In spite of all this, due to lack of understanding about the realities being faced by women at home, at place of work or in court often lead to inequality and injustice to women.Dr A S Anand, former Chief Justice of India, in his speeches had shown his concern for justice for women and in his judgments he gave an expression to those concerns. This book reviews both his concerns and expressions and will be of interest to persons concerned with issues related to gender justice.
