Visibilising Women: Facets of History Through a Gender Lens

Kirit K. Shah (Author) Radhika Seshan (Author)
Synopsis This book is an attempt to understand, through a gender lens, the ways in which society has been shaped, and the reasons for that shaping. Women in Indian society, as everywhere, constitute half of its members, but still figure very little in its historiography. The papers collected here focus on different times and different facets of women's history, but are linked by the common thread of trying to make visible, that which was invisible.
