A focus on the role of women in countries, especially in crisis and post- crisis situations, is very much needed while reviewing the progress toward gender equality and women's empowerment. The ongoing financial and economic crisis has also sparked widespread concern about its effect on such development goals.
In spite of the growing recognition both nationally and internationally, women and girls continue to face discrimination based on their gender. An immediate action is needed to strengthen political commitment to reform the discriminatory laws and policies which have existed for generations. The women's efforts at home and at work are critical for enhancing food security and community resilience. The inclusion of women in the police force aims to strike a balance between providing safety and law enforcement while still safeguarding people's civil rights and liberties.
Most of the early literature on policing, including textbooks, are based on police administration highlighting the issues of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. However, the field's focus has changed since then. The reformers are now focused on racial profiling, community relations, police discretion and use of force by police, among other concerns. Today's police conduct is better controlled than in the past, particularly since women began joining the force. More than ever before, police departments have become more diverse and inclusive.
This book focuses on the various aspects associated with women empowerment and role of women police. The efforts made by the governments and constitutional bodies towards achieving the goal of women empowerment have been highlighted, in Indian perspective.
