Women and Indian Nationalism
Some of the papers on the sub-theme Women and Indian Nationalism presented at the Third National Conference on Women's Studies held at Chandigarh in 1986, have been collected in this volume with an introduction which raises several questions. Various issues relating to women in the context of British rule, social reform and the development of the Indian Nationalist movement are discussed in each of the well-researched papers written by historians, sociologists and others.
This collection should generate greater interest in reexamining the nature and implications of women's participation in that momentous struggle.
