About the Book

Centre for Women & Law, NLUO is inviting submissions for its edited volume with a multidisciplinary approach on Socio-legal Androcentrism and Gender Inequalities. The objective of the proposed book is to contribute to the dismantling of the metanarrative of patriarchy which relegates women to the ‘second sex’ and hinges her existence relative to the men.

Androcentrism and metanarrative of patriarchy have traditionally influenced and shaped social behaviours, norms and cultural outlook. The same influence is also present in many legal frameworks and policies. Many recent judgements of the Apex Court have also highlighted inherent androcentrism of Indian social norms which is also reflected in law. Accordingly, it’s a transdisciplinary area, which has been revived with judgements like Joseph Shine (2018 SC), Shakti Vahini (2018 SC), Shafin Jahan (2018 SC) etc.
