Writing Feminism: South Asian Voices

Selina Hossain (Editor) Radha Chakravarty (Editor) Imagine a New South Asia (INSA) Series
Feminism in South Asia has expanded beyond the customary debates about the silencing and objectification of women and their confinement to domesticity and the reproductive role.

The stories in this anthology situate gender in relation to a host of contemporary issues, such as caste, class, community, creativity, work, globalisation, environment, technology, nation, politics and the body.

This volume contains writing by men and women from different South Asian countries. Encompassing multiple perspectives, languages and narrative approaches, the stories represent the cultural and linguistic diversity of the South Asian region.

The stories also help in highlighting overlapping concerns and the need to evolve greater mutual understanding among the people of the region. Together, these narratives reaffirm the role that literary texts can play in envisioning a more tolerant and harmonious world.
