Ironically, women are still victimised in our society. They have been at the receiving end, from the very beginning of our civilization and culture. Cutting across the regional and political barriers, their lot has been the same. The wrong perception, prevalent in our society is that they are born to be subservient to men and they must be confined to child-bearing and rearing only.
There has been a growing trend of violence against women, more so with hunger and greed for material things. Progressive changes in personal life style, living standards and varied growth, caused by urbanisation and changes in social ethos, all contribute to violent attitudes and tendencies, towards women, which have resulted in an increase in crimes against women.
This book would proved to be of worth for all scholars, researchers and social workers, who may prefer to know about the subject. They would find it, easy to read and comprehend. It would certainly be an asset for them.
