The Fair Sex in Tribal Cultures: Problems and Development

Samita Manna (Author)
Synopsis This Book is purely based on an empirical work on the problem of the Fair Sex in Tribal Cultures. Irrespective of the nature of the tribal societies the socio-economic conditions of the tribal women are not encouraging. Poverty, illiteracy and ignorance are the three main constraints of their development. The major thrust of this book is on exploring the nature of the problems of the tribal women belonging to different cultures--hunting and gathering (the Lodha and Birhor), basket making (the Mahali), cultivation (the Santal and Munda), and the Hinduised tribe (the Bhumij) who live in a similar ecological zone. The book no doubt gives a new dimension in the field of tribal studies where the problems of each culture are properly located. The author's scientific understanding as well as interpretation of the problems of each specific community has increased the academic value of this study.
