This book offers a selection of the most incisive records, analysis, as well as testimonies to have appeared in Manushi in its first five years. Vividly portrayed are the living and working conditions and the day-to-day struggles of millions of ordinary Indian women. The articles explore why, even four decades after Independence, women remain oppressed, and need to toil endlessly for basic necessities – food, fuel and water. This culture of women’s subjugation is seen not as a hangover from a traditional past, but as rooted in modern economic and political developments of the last two centuries.
