About this book

Introduction

This book re-examines 'everyday resistance', gender and power through the lens of women's experiences in colonial South Asia. Moving away from educated and outstanding figures and drawing on a range of unconventional sources, it unearths a narrative of deep and enduring resistance offered by less extraordinary women in their daily lives.
