Abstract: Lawyers collective, women’s rights initiative, prepared a craft law—the protection of women from domestic violence Act (pwdva)—in consultation with women’s groups from across the country to ensure emergency relief to women facing domestic violence. This law was passed by the Indian Parliament in 2005 and was brought in force by the government on 26 October 2006. Conflict in the shared household takes stock of the progress made towards achieving the objectives of the pwdva during the first decade of its implementation. It examines the nature of structural inequality that perpetuates and condones domestic violence as a lesser ‘wrong’ and traces the history of the fight against domestic violence in India, focusing on legislative developments and themes relating to state accountability in terms of providing a supportive framework.
