[ 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.

[ 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. ]

[ 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. ]
