9780143067429: Seeing Like a Feminist

A bold and wide-ranging book that re-orders contemporary society

For Nivedita Menon, feminism is not about a moment of final triumph over patriarchy but about the gradual transformation of the social field so decisively that old markers shift forever. From sexual harassment charges against international figures to the challenge that caste politics poses to feminism; from feminist dilemmas regarding commercial surrogacy to the Shah Bano case; from queer politics to domestic servants unions to the Pink Chaddi campaign; from the ban on the veil in France to the attempt to impose skirts on international women badminton players, Menon insists that feminism complicates the field irrevocably.
