Description

Title: Feminism, Nationalism and Exiled Tibetan Women

Author: ALEX BUTLER

ISBN: 8186706526

Edition: 2003

Pages: 242

Illustration:

Publisher: Kali for Women

About the Book:

ON SEPTEMBER, 1995, Tibetan nationalism and international front of a global audience when nine exiled. Tibetan women staged a demonstration at the united Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beiljing. From the Tibetan perspective, the women had created history by becoming the first Tibetans ever to hold a protest on Chinese soil.

This book traces the history of organized political resistance by Tibetan women over the 40-year period leading up to the Beijing Conference. It describes and analyses the development of the Tibetan Women's Association, the mass women's organization of the Tibetan exile community, and in particular the impact of feminism on it. It looks at the overlaps and tensions between nationalism and feminism, and examines how both can be constructed in exile. In doing so, the book raises questions of belonging and representation, of change and permanence, of political expediency and idealism. Overall, it provides a unique insight into the nature of Tibetan nationalism and its interaction with international forces and movements.

About the Author:

ALEX BUTLER is an Australian social scientist who has been involved in the Tiber support movement for over ten years. She is based at La Trobe University in Melbourne.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
