About this title

Synopsis:

This book examines the history of women in India's Gujarat region. The book reflects the wide range of controversies, debates, and concerns over women's issues during the colonial regime. It also encompasses the various dynamics of gender construct, women's identity formation, and the complex simultaneity of their marginalization. Before the era of Gandhi, women from cities and distinct country towns became agents of social change. By redefining themselves, women of diverse class, castes, and communities converged for a common cause of social reform. They developed a collective identity and made a 'transversal shift' while maintaining their ethnic rootedness. Women and Social Change provides a fresh approach to a number of central problems in the history of women in Gujarat.
