ABSTRACT

 

India has traditionally been a male dominated society due to which the women suffer from many social and economic disabilities at present. In such a scenario it becomes necessary that such conditions be created and necessary ameliorative steps be taken for the progress of women as a class which ultimately makes them lose all the disabilities. Gender jurisprudence is new ordering of society to emancipate and liberate women from the shackles of ancient law, traditions and customs whereby the new claims, interests, needs of the women are prompted and readjusted through law with men folk on a footing of equality, dignity and non-exploitation. Perhaps no Constitution is so much soaked with gender sensitivity and gender justice as the Indian constitution in conformity with Gandhian ethos and ideal of social and political reforms to uplift women
