Tribal Women in the New Profile: Vis-a-Vis their Non-Tribal Twins

Sarita Sahay (Author)
Synopsis The present book, first of its kind, differs distinctly and prominently from the books written in the past on tribes, tribal women, or working women of our country, because it deals with a hitherto unexplored profile of tribal women and compares the features with those of non-tribal women. Absence of detailed studies on the lives of tribal working women is not surprising because the phenomenon itself of tribal women entering into white-collar jobs in significant numbers, especially in cities located in tribal belts of our country, is of recent origin. But coming as they are from distinctly different socio-cultural background, having traversed different paths to arrive at their present destination and possession different psyche and approach towards their new role and life, tribal working women differ significantly from their non-tribal twins. One of the reasons for these differences lies in the patriarchy and normative system, which are not so much rigid in the tribal society as they are in the non-tribal society. Therefore, a comparative study of tribal and non-tribal working women presents to us an opportunity to observe the contours of cultural characteristics of the two societies as reflected in the attitudinal and motivational responses of their women. The author has analyzed the facts and figures obtained on different aspects of lives of tribal and non-tribal working women of Ranchi (the State Capital of Jharkhand) in the perspective of socio-cultural configurations of the two societies and presented the findings in a format meant for general readership. The book is expected to be of interest to researchers associated with tribal studies, women studies, comparative study of tribal and non-tribal societies, and working women.
