My research interests range from sociology of law, medical jurisprudence, ethnographies of courts, violence, gender studies, judicial reform and feminist legal theory. I have published on rape, sexual harassment, communal riots and “honour crimes”. I was a founder member of the Gender Study Group [1992-1997] and Forum against Sexual Harassment [1998-2002] in University of Delhi, which primarily raised the issue of sexual harassment in the academia. I also anchored the Law and Social Sciences Research Network, at the Centre for the Study of Law and Governance, Jawaharlal Nehru University.
