Feminism in India


The second in the series, Issues in Contemporary Indian Feminism, this volume brings together the writing of prominent Indian academics and activists as they discuss feminism in the context of the culture, society and politics of India, providing an overview of the history of Indian feminism. These essays show how the women’s movement is part of the larger project of consolidating secularism and democracy in India. The inevitability of the association with western feminism, the status of women in colonial and independent India, and recent challenges to feminism posed by the tide of globalization and the upsurge of the Hindu Right are discussed at length.
