CfP: Symposium on Women in the 21st Century India by Amity Law School, Noida [March 6-7]: Submit by Feb 3

Amity Law School, Noida is organising a symposium on “Dialectic Reflections on the Position of Women in the Twenty-First Century India: A step towards Right to Equality”, on 6th March and 7th March 2019.

This event is an attempt to establish that gender rights are for all. It will prove whether the recent developments such as Abolition of Triple talaq, Supreme Court’s latest ruling and opinion on Adultery or the conflicts related to Sabrimala Temple entry indicate a favorable time for women community to achieve Right to Equality.

This symposium will result in awareness amongst women by giving them more confidence to keep their problems so that their issues raised do not go unheard. It provides for an excellent platform for the women and scholars of the related field across India to come ahead and speak their mind.

This symposium is an innovative step to raise awareness amongst all the people regarding the details of Triple talaq, entry in temples and other problems faced by women in the twenty-first century. At the same time, this legal discourse also focuses on creating a link between Family Law and Constitutional Law. Any country can- not progress unless every single person is provided with human rights. Right to equality needs certain changes in our family laws as well and this symposium tries to create that link.

The Centre invites academicians, practitioners and students of law from any recognized university to register as a participant or to submit research papers for paper presentations to be held at the Symposium.
