Description

About the Book

 

The three essays in this volume explore the changing parameters of struggles over gender in Pakistan.

 

In the process, the author attempts to theoretically traverse the boundaries between public and private domains, the State and what is often referred to as 'civil society', the individual and the collective, and the local and international. She does this through a discussion of sovereignty and citizenship; the growing nexus between militarism, masculinism and fundamentalism; and the rapid shrinking of democratic spaces in the country.

She is the author of various articles on women, religion, nationalism and the State, which have been published in South Asia, the Middle East, and the US.
