Androcentrism and the metanarrative of patriarchy have traditionally influenced and shaped social behaviours, norms and cultural outlook. They have swayed the legal system, its language, legislations and policies. And in numerous situations, law and State policies cement the patriarchal and androcentric notions. Law can be an instrument of social transformation or a reason for social stagnation. There is an urgent need to modify laws to make them gender just, following the letter and spirit of the Indian Constitution and universal human rights values.

The Centre strives to revere the zeal of inquest and the aptitude of critical reasoning through dedicated research and discourse. It is in the furtherance of this idea that the Centre for Women and Law at National Law University Odisha, Cuttack presents this edited volume on the topic “Socio-Legal Androcentrism and Gender Inequalities”. Our endeavour through this volume of the Centre of Women and Law was to imbibe opinions on diverse areas of women rights and to contribute to the dismantling of the metanarrative of patriarchy which relegates women to the “second sex” and hinges her existence relative to the men. This edited book is an attempt to encourage contextualised discourse on the grave and contemporary issue of Androcentrism and the metanarrative of patriarchy.
