Democracy in the Family by Joy Deshmukh-Ranadive

Book Description

Democracy in the Family: Insights from India is unique in the way it employs diverse research methods to address the issue of justice in the family under the common theme of examining whether the ethos of democracy is relevant to it. The interface between principles of democracy inside and outside the home is explored through the sub-themes of 'Experiencing the Family', 'Expressing the Family', 'Seeking Justice' and 'Including the Excluded'. The topics covered range from examinations of the institution of the family, the site of the household, practices of householding and relationships between members, the impact of non-democratic norms and attempts to seek justice in the face of domestic strife and violence, to the advocacy of inclusive strategies that involve men and entire communities in democratising the family.
