The 3rd edition of this much-acclaimed work by Mamta Rao is a well researched and systematically organised study of the law relating to women and children.

The new edition contains the following important topics of special significance:

  1. Personal Laws (Amendment) Act, 2010 and Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act, 2008.
  2. Domestic Workers Welfare and Social Security Act, 2010 enacted to address the issue of exploitation of women and children.
  3. Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005 that grants women equal property rights in ancestral property.
  4. Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 which includes not merely physical violence but sexual, emotional, psychological and economic violence.
  5. Irretrievable breakdown of marriage, which has received judicial attention in recent times and the need to include it as a ground for divorce.
  6. Newly emerged concept of cyber-feminism.
  7. Commission for Protection of Child Right Act, 2005.
  8. Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Amendment Act, 2006.
  9. Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Amendment Act, 2006.

The subject is of immense relevance today, and forms an integral part of the curriculum of LL.B and LL.M. Leading cases on the subject specified in the syllabus of law schools have been included.

The author has discussed the problems faced by women and the protection provided under various criminal, personal and labour laws in India. Issues such as child labour, trafficking of children, child abuse and juvenile delinquency have been analysed. 


Extract from the Foreword by Justice A.K. Shrivastava Judge, High Court of Madhya Pradesh

"This book would definitely give a positive direction to understand the laws relating to women and children not only to the law students but also to the lawyers as well as to the Judges."
