An unbiased India: A study of gender politics post Indian independence


Author(s): Srija Rakshit

Abstract:
During the colonial era, politics was confined within the hands of the men, particularly a few ‘privileged upper section of the society men’. Women’s issues far from being discussed, were rather shushed upon. Mostly than not, women have been defined as a problem by various Indian plans and women's issues are so often written around (or under) the state's desire to control female bodies in the name of national population planning. This paper edges in bringing together a narrative of Indian planning around ‘women’ with several remarks on (and drawn from) Western and non-Western feminisms.
