Women In The Indian National Movement: Unseen Faces and Unheard 

Voices, 1930-42
Women In The Indian National Movement: Unseen Faces and Unheard Voices, 1930-42
Description
About the Book:

Most studies of the role of women in the Indian national Movement have concentrated on he contribution made by only a handful of prominent women leaders such as Sorajini Naidu, Vijaylakshmi Pandit and Aruna Asaf Ali. Less acknowledged but equally forceful was the participation of hundreda of women at the local level- out in the streets as well as inside their homes. This book significantly focuses on the nationalist participation of ordinary middle-class women in India freedom movement especially in the United provinces.

While capturing the nationalist expression of women in the public and domestic spheres, the author

· Investigates how women engaged with nationalists politics despite constraints like the purdah system, social backwardness and high rates of female illiteracy in the region;

· Identifies two parallel process that were at work: (a) the domestication of the public sphere- how women participated in the streets without compromising on their domestic values; and (b) the politicization of the domestic sphere- how women handled situation in the family when nationalism entered households through the activities of the their husbands and sons; and

· Shows how women used the symbolic repertoire of the national movement and the political languages of Gandhi to facilitate their own participation.

To construct the nationalist narratives of unheard voices, the author goes beyond conventional sources of history such as official and archival records. Instead she employs a diverse range of materials-including oral narratives, poetry, cartoons, vernacular magazines and private correspondence- inorder to let these women speak for themselves.

Drawing upon field studies in northern India's Hindi-Sanskrit heartland the author also sheds light on the domestic lives of middle-class caught women caught in the swirling vortex of political emotion. She discusses issues of contestation and subordination within patriarchal structures, and the contexts within which women's political consciousness are shaped. The book will be of interest to scholars of history, anthropology, women's studies and politics both for its contents and for the methodology it employs.

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.
