Feminism and Indian Realities

K.A. Kunjakkan (Author)
Synopsis This book is primarily on the Indian situation in the context of feminism with special reference to the status of Indian women through the ages and the external influences that transform their life style in modern India. According to the author Indian women, indeed, have problems. But Western feminism is not the solution for their problems. In fact, says the author, it is only a luxury for a microscopic minority of educated elite women. This small minority is completely divorced from the real interests of the majority of women steeped in poverty and lack of education in rural India. They are unemployed, superstitious and victims of different types of exploitation. The educated elite who are basking in the sunshine of plenty and pleasure are oblivious of these poor women??s problems. Also, it is this minority of the country??s women who are making noises of gender-equality, ?®sex subordination?? and ?®subjugation??, according to the author. The Indian women, says the author, are fully protected by laws??more than in any other country??and they are better placed than women in the west. Yet, unfortunately, the various women??s commissions staffed by the elite women have been unable to do anything for the upliftment of the suffering and exploited poor Indian women. Women have to wake up and look around and start doing things for themselves. Preaching the feminist philosophy will not solve their problems : it would aggravate the problems. This, in a nutshell, is the message of the book written after extensive research and study of books periodicals and monumental reports.
