Feminist Law Archives

By Partners For Law In Development

Chronicling the Engagement of the Women's Movement with Law

Feminist Law Archives is an ongoing project by Partners for Law in Development which chronicles the engagement of the women’s movement with law in India. The Archives provide access to unpublished or difficult to access documents and advocacy materials from the women’s movement, including memorandums, reports, petitions, articles, resolutions etc., that reflect feminist perspectives, contestation and engagement with the law on various themes, primarily focusing on sexuality, violence and the gender equality within the family. Although the themes or the material under each is far from comprehensive, the blog strives to preserve the more defining debates and documents through this blog, under each theme. Thus, documents have been indexed as per theme, and cross-referenced across other themes with which they are related. As a consequence, they may or may not be arranged chronologically. We invite you to share similar materials so as to make our collective struggles with the law widely available. We welcome your feedback and contributions to this archive. To share documents on the Feminist Law Archives, write to us at: resources@pldindia.org.
