Looks at the unique cultural/social/historical issues defining the position of women in India. Such issues include competing notions of feminism, the shape and influence of the Indian women's movement, the role of class and caste in women's lives, and most recently, the impact of globalization. Cultural critique of the manner in which Indian women have been studied and represented in the West will form the context of our examination.
