The Lineaments of Population Policy in India : Women and Family Planning

The Lineaments of Population Policy in India : Women and Family Planning

Description

India is the first country in the world to have an official programme for family planning that commenced in 1952. It has also seen a strong women's movement to assert reproductive and contraceptive rights. This book brings to the fore several contestations and negotiations between public policy and the women's movement in India. The comprehensive volume puts together key documents from archival records and authoritative sources, and traces the contours that have marked and defined the population policy in India as well as rights issues for women.

A major intervention in the field, this book will be indispensable for scholars and researchers in public policy, public health, demography, gender studies, social policy, development studies, sociology, social justice, human rights, politics and those interested in the study of modern India.
