While understanding the social dimensions, the presence of social friction between the subjects of society is acknowledged by them, but they resisted any changes, as much as possible; because it threatens their time immemorial standardized way of life. This book is a cumulation of the discussions which shed light on those topics which challenged, countered, and deliberated the issues related to women, as they agitated, struggled against the dominance of the patriarchy and conservative minds, and always put their faith in the progressive aspects of the ever-changing society.
The book focuses on current issues – women protested for their identity against the mighty government; redefine their body dynamics and were susceptible to the rosy changes in the name of empowerment; searching the meaning of their life in difficult situations and unmasked the vile face of the dominant presence of patriarchy in religion, society and institutions; sustaining her inner strength in ongoing pandemic situations, and many others.
The book would act as an inspirational and knowledge repertoire to graduates and postgraduate students of various disciplines. It would also inspire them to pursue research on topics related to feminism in social science and humanities.
