Contemporary Indian Society : A Gendered Perspective

"The volume has addressed a wide array of current social issues and problems relevant to women in India from a sociological standpoint and a gendered perspective. Depicting a mix of qualitative and quantitative, empirical and theoretical in their nature; the twelve studies incorporated in this volume cover issues such as Significance of Gender Studies, Muslim Women's Activism, Women in Conflict Situation, Women Individuality and Development, Witch Hunting Women's Representation in the Media, Gender Equality and Family Planning, Status of Working Women, Discriminations against Dalit Women Female Sex Workers, Work and Economic Empowerment of Women and Feminist Thought and Indian Feminism. The heterogeneity of the issues covered in this volume itself makes a strong argument for further such studies on gender issue in sociological discourse."                                                                                         [from Blurb]
