Description
In the earlier plethora of writing on women in India, women were the objects of study and were viewed as the "other" by the authors, who were men. The voices of the women themselves were muted, and they were present more a functions of a particular literary or religious situation than as functions of authority in their own right. Women Hinduism and Islam belongs to a new gene that talks about those and more. This books is an attempt to critically appreciate modes of social behaviour from the tradition's own perspective. Because of the limitations, working on socio-legal problems, especially in the case of Women, becomes more difficult task.
