This book outlines the reconstitution of patriarchies in nieneteenth century Maharashtra through an exploration of the life, work and times of Pandita Ramabai, one of India's earliest feminists. It examines the manner in which the colonial state's new institutional structures, caste contestations, class formation and nationalism transformed and reorganised gender relations. It also explores the nature of the new agendas being set for women, how these were received by them and in what ways and to what extent their consent to these reconstructed patriarchies was produced. The author shows that while many women were ready to act as willing reproducers of caste, class and gender norms, there were others who withheld consent to the dominant model of patriarchy emerging in the nineteenth century. She argues that certain processes in nineteenth century Maharashtra created the conditions for a fairly sharp critique of patriarchy to emerge, a unique feature for its time. This new edition comes with a fresh introduction that details recent discussions on issues of patriarchy, class and gender particularly in the context of Maharashtra; it also addresses issues raised in some new books on the life of Ramabai. Contents Prologue 1. Caste, Gender and the State in Eighteenth Century Maharashtra 2. Caste Contestation, Class Formation, Nationalism and Gender 3. Law, Colonial State and Gender 4. Men, Women and the Embattled Family 5. On Widowhood: The Critique of Cultural Practices in Women's Writing 6. Structure and Agency: A Life and a Time Bibliography Index. Printed Pages: 418.
