Responses to Violence against Women in India

Wednesday 24 November 2010, 1.30PM to 14:30

Speaker(s): Anjali Dave (Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai)

This presentation will offer a brief appraisal of the different legal and social mechanisms available to violated women in India and will focus its attention on a socio-legal service – the Special Cell for Women and Children. It will critically review the service developed in a Strategic Alliance between academic institutions/ civil society organisations and the Police, identify some persisting concerns and argue for the need to persevere with the state and social structures in the Indian society.
