Women's Studies in India: A Journey of 25 Years

Madhu Vij (Editor) Manjeet Bhatia (Editor) Shelly Pandey (Editor)

Womens Studies, by its very philosophy, is located beyond the individual. Its aim is to transform society for ensuring dignity to women through various institutional tools such as teaching, research, policy advice and extension programmes.

This book is about the journey of past twenty-five years of UGCs initiated Womens Studies, the way it got shaped at the University of Delhi. It is an attempt to highlight various womens concerns touched upon by the scholars associated with the Womens Studies and Development Centre. The themes covered in the book throw a light on the trajectory of this journey with an interdisciplinary inquiry of womens realities. The book contributes to the understanding of gender at various backdrops, like, girl child, young urban women, womens agency, negotiations with violence, representation of women in media and literature, the caste and class realities and the concerns that have emerged due to globalization.
