Marginalized for centuries, women in India have now established themselves in the forefront of the public sphere; independent and brave, they break new barriers every day, moving from strength to strength. This book is not about these women. This book is about the forgotten and the abused, about the silent voices craving justice. A daunting and disturbing exploration of women in Indian prisons, Whither Justice is a collection of the stories of their battle against various forces: the government, the law-courts, family and poverty. The stories are fiction, but told from the unique perspective of someone who has lived with them, they vividly capture the despair and the strength of these bloody and unbowed women. About the Author Nandini Oza completed her post-graduation in social work from Baroda. She was placed in Central Jail as part of her field work, and her work as an activist exposed her to the stories of women prisoners. She currently works with a trust.
