The gender question: Why the Justice Verma committee report can be depressing

If the Justice Verma committee report were to be made available as a paperback, it would find space on bookshelves somewhere between Sylvia Plathand Virginia Woolf. It is a telling indictment of the condition of women in a particular time and space. It is sensitive, well-thought-out, lucidly written and even brings an immediacy of personal experience. And more than anything else, it is capable of sending into deep depression the shiniest of optimists.
