This omnibus brings together three significant works on Gender equality which comprehensively analyse key issues including women's rights, social justice, and empowerment. Together, the Books span Legal change in India over two centuries when women's rights were negotiated, rewritten and coded. In doing so they provide a comprehensive and significant understanding of why progressive laws, once passed, continue to be implemented in such a limited manner. They highlight the fact that legislations in the past fifty years have not brought gender equality in any real sense. In An Introduction especially written for this collection, social activist and women's rights lawyer Flavia Agnes explores the complex Relationship between notions of patriarchy, sexuality, property, and the manner in which they are normalized and essentialized through State intervention and judicial discourse.
