The volumes of the Project on the History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization aim at discovering the main aspects of India`s heritage and present them in an interrelated way. This volume offers insights into womens lives in colonial and post-colonial India, fully cognizant of the complex interlinking of class, caste, ethnicity, religion, nation, state policy and gender.The essays in this volume explore the operation of power and the resistance to it, the space that was denied to the disadvantaged genderwomenand the space they created for themselves, and the history of the mutual roles of women and men in colonial and post-colonial India. Eminent scholars on womens studies and reputed scientists, drawn from diverse disciplines and located in different parts of India, present themes that are crucial to the understanding and experience of gender in India.
