The Violence of Development

Karin Kapadia
Price: $ 25

This book investigates the contemporary situation of women in India by focusing on four broad domains: the cultural, the social, the political, and the economic. The writers argue that despite apparently positive indicators of progress, particularly in education and paid employment, little has changed in the position of women. Steadily falling sex ratios suggest a growing bias against the female child.
