Fields of protest : women's movements in India by Raka Ray( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The women's movement in India has a long and rich history in which millions of women live, work, and struggle to survive in order to remake their family, home, and social lives.

Social movements in India : poverty, power, and politics( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Social movements have played a vital role in Indian politics since well before the inception of India as a new nation in 1947. During the Nehruvian era, poverty alleviation was a foundational standard against which policy proposals and political claims were measured; at this time, movement activism was directly accountable to this state discourse. In the first volume to focus on poverty and class in its analysis of social movements, a group of leading India scholars shows how social movements have had to change because poverty reduction no longer serves its earlier role as a political template. With distinctive chapters on gender, lower castes, environment, the Hindu Right, Kerala, labor, farmers, and biotechnology, Social Movements in India will be attractive to students and researchers in many different disciplines."--Jacket

Elite and everyman : the cultural politics of the Indian middle classes( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the middle classes -- who they are and what they do -- and their influence in shaping contemporary cultural politics in India. Describing the historical emergence of these classes, from the colonial period to contemporary times, it shows how the middle classes have changed, with older groups shifting out and new entrants taking place, thereby transforming the character and meanings of the category. The essays in this volume observe multiple sites of social action (workplaces and homes, schools and streets, cinema and sex surveys, temples and tourist hotels) to delineate the lives of the middle classes and show how middle-class definitions and desires articulate hegemonic notions of the normal and the normative"--Publisher

Venus and Mars( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are men and women really that different? Society tends to emphasize differences more than similarities. This often leads to competition, and in some cases, inequality. Gender issues and stratification, the gender divide in the workplace, the impact of Title Seven, and the women's movement are explored in this lesson. As illustrated in the example of a female football team, it can take a lot of determination to defy the agents of socialization and overcome gender basis."
