Gender, Patriarchy and Violence

Edited by: Rajesg Gill

Gender, Patriarchy and Violence brings out the nuances of gender, patriarchy, caste, and violence in the context of culture and politics, with a special focus on the Indian states, Punjab and Haryana. It includes a brilliant exposition depicting the patriarchal biases of judges, often resulting in adjudications which are gendered in nature. Tracing the gendered power dynamics from Punjabi literature, this volume highlights the persistence of gendered spaces and choices, along with a cultural fixation, even in modern urban contexts. The articles cover the conceptual, empirical, and policy issues in the process of change and continuity in gendered societies. This volume is the outcome of the work being undertaken at the Centre for Excellence under the UGC Scheme of Centre with Potential for Excellence in Particular Area.
