A Life Free from Violence : The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act A Commentary

Date: 01/12/2010

Document: Read the full book here.

Edited By Sheela Ramanathan
Although after the protest the bill was referred to a
parliamentary standing committee which had accepted
several recommendations submitted by many women’s groups
from all over India. The basic lacuna was that the bill had
failed to make a declaration that women have a right to be
free from violence in their home. The women’s groups had
therefore been holding consultations and recommendations
started pouring in to have successfully kept up the pressure
and the bill finally got amended to the present Act.
