Description
Code: IDG167

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.

Testimonials
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
