Political Participation of Women in a Changing Society
The institutional and legal provisions for change from the colonial regime to a social welfare polity, made during the post-independence days did open up scope for women of India to attain a fair measure of justice and equality. To translate such provisions into living realities the task was to make women involved in various participatory situations and opportunities and thereby influence theri existing social relationships and attitudes which have kept them vulnerable. Tracing this development, Sampa Guha sets the stage for an anlysis of that process as if unfolds in the experience of women of West Bengal. She examiens the nature of mobilization of women, whereby they could have been made aware and orgnised so that they might be able to break the shackles of constraints which they find themselves in.
