eBook (PDF), 106 Pages
Spousal abuse, honor killings, rape, and acid attacks by jilted lovers seem to be pervasive across India. Daily newspapers reflect the severity of abuse, lack of governmental support and the nonchalance of the judicial system. Whether it is regarding education, wages, access to healthcare, household decisions, respect or inheritance, India has a very transparent issue that needs reparation - Gender Discrimination. Father India deals with the implications of such prejudice in India and explains the extent of gender bias in society. Not only does this novel address principal socio-economic issues, but it also offers feasible solutions to the matters in question.

Jan 5, 2014As an epidemiologist interested in studying and researching public health issues, I really was moved after reading this book. I could sense that a lot of time, critique, and effort has been invested in this work - which made it very thorough, focused, and fact-oriented. All the topics covered in the book aptly distill the most important concern in India, related to gender discrimination. Further, I understand that this work is not just limited to the geographic boundaries of one country, but can easily be implied to many other countries which share a similar cultural and socio-economic profile. The temporality of this work is noteworthy, as recent trends in violence and abuse against females in India, and elsewhere, are on a steep rise. I was particularly awe-struck by the superior quality of this narrative. Ms. Yerneni has commendably presented her argument in a clear and logical format, almost equivalent to a refined graduate level thesis. I believe that this book is a time capsule,...

This work can help inform evidence-based interventions, to generate hypothesis for new research, and to bring to table needed policy changes to protect the vulnerable. Overall, a great compendium of detail on matters we cannot afford to ignore or postpone to address.< Less
Jan 2, 2014Good insight into the current issues in this part of the world, supported by data and statistics. Hope this book will encourage more girls of this age to take up these causes. Good luck !
Dec 31, 2013An excellent read! Suvena addresses some of the burning issues that India is facing with respect to women given the recent incidents that have taken place. The book is based on extensive quantitative and qualitative research about gender inequality and widespread discrimination among women. 'Father India' challenges us as a nation to be more proactive in supporting one another to bring about reform.
Dec 31, 2013The book covers the socio-economic aspects of the "malaise" in the society quite well. Reading the story about Anshu Singh is especially sad as education doesn't seem to enlighten certain classes of people! The narration of the book is excellent and the real stories drive home the point well.
Dec 29, 2013The book covers all aspects of atrocities that women in third world undergo with good research data to support all the conclusions drawn.Although women have made good strides in some of the industries like technology and banking, they still have long ways to go in others. Good insights into what has been done and what needs to be done !
