Through successive historical periods, ‘becoming a citizen’ has involved a gradual extension of equal membership to more and more persons and groups. However, the promise of equality masks the exclusionary framework of caste hierarchies, gender differences, and religious divides, which determine actual experiences of citizenship. Historically, citizenship was constituted through a series of exclusions whereby large sections of people, (colonised societies, slaves, women and workers) were considered inadequate for it. Citizenship is therefore made up of multiple margins, but it also release... View more info

Has using the law led to justice for women who face violence? What does ?justice? mean for an individual survivor? How can we address violence in public spa... View more info

In the context of Sri Lanka this Study concentrates on the taken for granted "unsaid" Nature of Relations between the sexes and the process by which they change imperceptibly over time. Gender relations were substantially transformed during British Colonial rule, although these changes often went unrecognized by both the colonizer and the colonized. During this process of gender Transformation the position of Women deteriorated, not so much due to a direct move to curb their position, but more as an indirect result of an intensified struggle over resources between the more powerful (ma...

The Feminine Sacred in South Asia

By: Harald Tambs-Lyche (Ed.)

Price: $12.70

Publisher: New Delhi, Manohar Publishers & Distributors:

Seller ID: 1200882

ISBN: 8173042462

Condition: New


Drawing examples from ritual practice, myth, and sacred texts, the contributors discuss the place of the feminine in the male dominated society of South Asia within the sacred sphere of South Asian religion. The theme is, however, full of contradictions due to differing perceptions on the subject between Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic thought. Thus the volume, contributing to the debate on feminity in South Asian religion, would also be of interest to scholars dealing with gender in a broader perspective. Printed Pages: 148 View more info

The invisibility accorded to queer literary works in India has a systematic sinister agenda of silencing. Such a hidden target can be countered only by cataloguing the still unexplored queer texts in various Indian languages and by developing unique critical tools to analyse these texts in a such a manner that helps in excavating the convoluted layers and subversive potential of queer identities. This book aims at developing an exclusive literary framework to analyse the Indian queer literary works. In all, there are seven chapters which deal with the themes of plurality of lesbian existence, ... View more info

The gender balance in Asia is significantly shaped by the male-biased sex ratios of two of its most populous countries, China and India. The rapid fertility declines in the two countries, resulting from China's one-child policy and India's two-child norm, combined with the advent of sex determination technologies, has contributed to the birth of fewer girls. As a result of these factors, both countries now have an excess of males and a shortage of females.There is increasing concern over the likely adverse consequences of such highly masculine populations.
