Women in India

Violence against women comes in many shapes.

In South Asia, honor killings and domestic abuse, dowry killings and rapes, abortion of female fetuses and the killing of small girls are daily occurrences. Looking for the reasons, one encounters two equally bone-crushing realities: the culturally deep-rooted patriarchal structures and the economic struggle for survival of the lower castes.

Katharina Kakar draws a many-faceted portrait of the world of Indian women, including its bright spots. The heroines of this book are women who fearlessly and resourcefully stand up against the injustices imposed on them.
