South Asian feminism is in crisis. Under constant attack from right-wing nationalism and religious fundamentalism and coopted by 'NGIO-ization' and neoliberal state agendas, once autonomous and radical forms of feminist mobilization have been ideologically fragmented and replaced. It is time to rethink the feminist political agenda for the predicaments of the present. This timely volume provides an original and unprecedented exploration of the current state of South Asian feminist politics. It will map the new sites and expressions of feminism in the region today, addressing issues like disability, Internet technologies, queer subjectivities and violence as everyday life across national boundaries, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka. Written by young scholars from the region, this book addresses the generational divide of feminism in the region, effectively introducing a new 'wave' of South Asian feminists that resonated with feminist debates everywhere around the globe. Srila Roy is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa. She is author of Remembering Revolution: Gender, Violence and Subjectivity in India's Naxalbari Movement (OUP) and co-editor of New Subaltern Politics (OUP). She is an editor of the journal, Feminist Theory. Printed Pages: 208.
