|ISBN:||9788132109525||Author:||LTD, SAGE PUBLICATIONS PVT|
|Separated and Divorced Women in India examines the ecomic rights and entitlements of separated/deserted women in law and practice in India, and explores all the laws and policies relating to financial support for a wife or child that come into play once a separation or divorce has taken place. Based on a survey of more than 400 women in four different regions across the country, this seminal work lays bare the miserable financial conditions of separated/deserted women and the lengthy procedural obstacles that these women have to contend with to get any justice. It interrogates the absence of any laws that would give Indian women ownership rights in the property and assets that they have helped to acquire through financial or n-financial contributions in the marital home, and suggests that Community of Property should be made a part of law for all Indian women. This work further challenges the conventional understanding of productive work and advocates recognition of the productive nature of women's household work. Ather aspect discussed pertains to the pervasive scourge of dowry and how seldom women recover their dowry and stridhan through the law.|

|Author Biography||Kirti Singh is a noted lawyer working and practising on women's issues in Delhi. As a part-time member of the 18th Law Commission of India, she worked on the reports on laws related to child marriage and acid attacks. She has recently drafted a bill on crimes and killings in the name of 'honour' on behalf of All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA), of which she is the legal convenor. This draft law has been adopted with some changes by the National Commission for Women (NCW). She is also working on other issues with NCW and is on their expert committee on laws. In the past she has worked on amendments to laws relating to sexual assault and sexual harassment in the Indian Penal Code, 1860 for AIDWA and NCW. She has also worked for reform in the laws related to 'maintenance' under Section 125, Code of Criminal Procedure. During the early 1980s, she was involved in suggesting reforms to laws related to dowry and rape. Currently she is working on an extensive study of laws which promote son preference and discrimination against the daughter for the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).|
