Marginalised for centuries, women in India have now established themselves in the forefront of the public sphere; independent and brave they break new barriers everyday, moving from strength to strength. This book is not about these women.

This book gives the silent a voice, the forgotten a name and the abused, the justice that they crave. Whither Justice is a daunting and disturbing look at women in Indian prisons; these are stories of their battle against various forces: the government, family, poverty. Living in a society that creates its own villains and is quick to punish them, these women-faceless, voiceless and forgotten-battle on.

These fictionalised stories are of dreams shattered beyond recognition, of hopes that still linger. Told from the unique perspective of someone who has actually lived with them, the author has vividly captured their despair and their strength.
