267 pages




Indian women in a wide range of humanities and social sciences describe examples of women's empowerment and leadership in a number of fields. Among their topics are revisiting the theme of women's empowerment, whether women in the corporate sector are czarinas or Girl Fridays, gender and politics in the fiction of Mahaweta Devi, writing from a Dalit feminist standpoint, women performers recasting bodies and transforming the self in the Bombay film industry (1925-47), the independent and vibrant Alpha Songbirds, the Indraprastha School empowering women through education, and the implementation of sexual assault laws as a movement for change.
