Status and Position of Women : In Ancient, Medieval and Modern India

Raj Kumar Pruthi (Author) Romila Pruthi (Editor) Rameshwari Devi (Author)
Synopsis "The Position of Women in India-right from the ancient through medieval to the modern times-has always attracted debate. Some scholars opine that women enjoyed greater freedom in the days of yore, others hold that the opposite is true. Here we have tried to present the facts as they were by quoting extensively from the Puranas and Smrtis. However, as recognised by the editors in this book, women have always been fighting for equal recognition in society. Through all this there have been literary, religious, political, poetical, cultural and social geniuses-all women-who have left their indelible mark in the history of India. This book exhaustively chronicles women's plight and positions through the ages from the Vedic period down to the present times. Women achievers have been given their pride of place in their respective fields. This outstanding volume will surely benefit all scholars, and students, teachers, policy makers, social welfare agencies, sociologists, women’s associations and all those who are interested in a detailed study of women in India".
