School of Law organized a guest lecture on 20th of September 2019 on Feminist Jurisprudence and contemporary developments in the area of women and Law. Ms. Shiva Priyamvada from the University of Delhi was the guest speaker for the event. She started with the concept of the basic feminist idea that there is no difference between men and women when it comes to their fundamental worth. The nature and value of a person is independent of their gender. The essential idea of feminism is the equality of woman with man. Feminism rests mainly on the belief that women are unjustly treated in many aspects of life. Our contemporary society is patriarchal, in the sense that it has been shaped by, and continues to be dominated by, white men. As a result of this patriarchal structure, women do not have as much power as men and are not treated in the same way as men, do not enjoy the same degree of control over their lives as men, and in general are referred to a subordinate status. She elaborated by basing her arguments on some landmark judgements. The end of this informative lecture was marked by giving a gift to Ms. Shiva Priyamvada by Dr. Ramesh Kumar, the head of the department, as a token of gratitude. This session was quite fruitful for the budding lawyers and helped them a lot by giving them great insights about feminist jurisprudence.
