This book highlights the diverse efforts made by a wide range of groups--the government, Christian missionaries, social reformers, and the women themselves--to bring about the emancipation of Muslim women in India. It looks closely at changes in education and in medical care, particularly at government-sponsored programs to improve maternal health. It also details the struggle of women to win the right to vote. The book is based on primary archival research, making it an invaluable resource for students of women's history and of the history of British India.
