Pakistan; Bangladesh; Sri Lanka; hindoes; moslims.
[ Focusing on women's agency and activism within the South Asian contexts
this book contributes to the field of gender studies. It explores the paradoxical relationship
of women to religious politics in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Contrary to
the hopes of feminists, many women have responded to religious nationalist appeals;
contrary to the hopes of religious nationalists they have also asserted their gender, class,
caste and regional identities; contrary to the hopes of nation states, they have challenged
state policies. ]

vrouwen: rechten; vrouwen; wetgeving; geweld tegen vrouwen.
[ This manual treis to explore the various aspects of laws
related to women and the rights provided to women. It also examines the various forms
and modes of violation that go on unabated. This manual focuses upon the numerous
disadvantageous positions that women are subjected to. Though women constitute half of
the population, they have for ages victims of violence, exploitation and discrimination.
The legal provisions made available for women have to some extent provided protection
of women's rights, but that does not suffice. ]

pag). (UI-362-030) Derde Wereld algemeen; gender-analyse; vrouwen;

[ If real change is to occur with respect to gender, organizations will have to
become accountable to the needs and
interests of women - not only development organizations in the South, but also
Northern donor organizations. This
book highlights the need to remedy the double standard involved in a one-sided
focus on the South, while
maintaining a gender perspective in relation to funding.

Political Styles in Two South Indian Activist Groups.
Curzon, Richmond (179 pag). (UI-383-027) India; vrouwenvakbonden/-organisaties; vrouwenbewegingen/feminisme; vrouwen; NGO's, Indiase;
[ This study analyses women's activism in a broad context of Indian political
culture and participation, a field of
research that previously has focused largely on the interaction of males. The
study demonstrates that Indian women
do participate in political processes although in different ways from men. In so
doing, the author examines the
nature of two women's activist groups in Madras (Pennurimai Iyakkam, Joint
Action Council for Women) and focuses on
their involvement with media, slum women, legal rights and training of women.

Utrecht (112 pag). (UI-361-062) Sri Lanka; vrouwen; ontwikkelingsproblematiek; vrouwenarbeid.
[ The dominant paradigm of development thinking has a powerful influence on
development practice. The net effect is
that the economically disadvantaged -mostly women- become totally apathetic to
any advances in the name of
development. But the relief to their situation lies in their own autonomy and
self-reliance. How can development
workers help the disadvantaged groups actuate this? The author worked with
women coconut fibre workers in Sri
Lanka, until the success of her work made her role as facilitator redundant.

[ A comprehensive study of Dalit women and girls enmeshed in prostitution in

of cases the exploitative
induction of children); the oppressive routine of brothel life; the religiously
sanctioned 'Devadasi' system of
prostitution; the devastating fate of prostitutes past their prime; etc.

[ All over the world women are victimised to a serious extent by violence
committed by men. Whether the nature of
that violence is maltreatment of women, sexual abuse and rape, or trafficking in
women, it is always connected to
the unequal division of power in relation to social and economic factors. The
author talked to police and to
victims in South Africa, India, the USA, Uganda, the Netherlands and Poland.

[ Southeast Asian countries initiated structural adjustment and adopted a flexible
employment model from the mid 70s.
They gained much experience with this particular model and could offer useful
and relevant lessons to the other

workers in the industries of Southeast Asian countries and in India. A detailed
case study of an Indian large scale
multinational engineering industry is chosen for this purpose.
