About this Item: Stree an Imprint of Bhatkal, 2007. Soft cover. Condition: As New. Contents Foreword/Maithreyi Krishnaraj. Introduction. 1. Patriarchy a history of the term. 2. Production reproduction and patriarchy global debates. 3. Production reproduction and patriarchy Indian arguments on household kinship caste and the state. 4. Culture religion and patriarchy. 5. Sexuality and patriarchy. Conclusion. Index. Addressing students and the general reader this series introduces key concepts in feminist theory. Any reader will find the series vitally useful for understanding what new theories mean and how these have evolved and are being used today. Where does the word patriarchy come from. Once it meant the absolute rule of the father or the eldest male member over his family. Today it refers to male authority and power as exercised in our lives. Culturally it is so pervasive that it appears natural and those who struggle against it are seen as deviants. V. Geeta shows how patriarchy is supported by kinship structures relationships of production and the caste system and persists because it is not merely coercive but is based on acquiescence beguiling us by its cultural myths and rituals. She argues that cultural and sexual norms and practices constitute the everyday contexts for the exercise of patriarchal power and we ourselves actively aid retard negotiate and challenge these norms. Concise and clear this book helps us understand the complexity of patriarchy and thus the way we live. 212 pp. Seller Inventory # 64404
