This anthology explores the impact of globalization on Indian women and the struggle for gender equality. Since urban India has taken the initial benefit and brunt of globalization, the focus here is on urban women, particularly from the educated middle class. The two dozen essays in this book offer insights into: - gender identity, gender relations and conceptions of women - violence against women and conflict resolution - women and the media - neo-liberal globalization, from beauty pageants to working conditions - women and information and communication technologies - politics and women's political participation 'Women's work is never done,' said an African women's rights activist, 'Feminists' work will never ever be done.' This book reminds us that the road to the complete empowerment of women in India is still a long one. Printed Pages: 372.
