The Emergence of Feminism in India, 1850-1920
Issues, such as the motivations of Indian women in participating in the socio-religious reform movements and movements of religious conversion, have not yet received the attention from scholars that their significance merits. This book aims to try and redress this balance by placing women back at the centre of their own narrative.
