Female activists united over issues such as female infanticide, gender bias, women health, and female literacy. Since alcoholism is often associated with violence against women in India, many women groups launched anti-liquor campaigns in Andhra Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh and other states. Many Indian Muslim women have questioned the fundamental leaders interpretation of women's rights under the Shariat law and have criticized the triple talaq system. Poverty is one of the main problems which have attracted attention of sociologists and economists. It indicates a condition in which a person fails to maintain a living standard adequate for his physical and mental efficiency. Children have always been vulnerable to victimization. Their trusting natures and naivete make them perfect targets for perpetrators-both people they know and those they don't. As children grow into adolescents, they remain vulnerable to victimization. As the book addresses this crucial issue quite deftly, it is hoped that it would prove to be a source of great conformation for the reader.
