Beyond the woman question: reconstructing gendered identities in early India with an introd. by Kumkum Roy

Singh, Snigdha et al.

₹ 895.00

The book both revisits and interrogates some of the central tenets of the 'woman question' as it emerged in colonial India and shaped (and continues to shape) subsequent historiography. These includes issues of women's access to resources, ritual 'rights', and locations within the family, primarily relating to an unmarked category of upper-caste/class women.
