Book Description Stree, 2005. How is gender ideology reproduced in adivasi societies How far can gender constructions be instrumental in perpetuating womens subjugation and exploitation Focusing upon Chotanagpur now a part of the newly formed state of Jharkhand Shashank Shekhar Sinha tries to raise questions that are of paramount concern yet are so peripheral in the existing studies on tribes and genderInvestigating traditions an area largely ignored by historians and social scientists Sinha tries to show how these can influence and structure the construction and reproduction of gender identities It is true that women were hardly positioned as equals in adivasi societies or indeed in mainstream Indian society but they played an important role in the traditional division of labour Women were the cultivators they sold produce in the markets and they sold their labour Later they were to play a significant role in the adivasi uprisings against colonial exploitation Under the impact of colonialism and market capitalism they were pushed to the margins of resulting political economics In addition the infiltration of caste and religious influences brought about significant shifts in traditional gender identities Women faced three systems of discrimination patriarchy colonialism and capitalism all reinforcing and on occasions working in tandem with each other This book discusses how women negotiated with these complex systems sometimes visibly sometimes invisibly 290 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 94235
