Description - Appropriating Gender by Patricia Jeffery

Appropriating Gender is a comprehensive collection of essays that examines the roles of women in fundamentalist movements, as well as the gender policies of these movements and of the South Asian states in which they operate. Divided into three sections, Part I examines gender, nation, and the state; Part II the "Everyday and the Local"; and Part III the dynamics of agency and activism in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Appropriating Gender is the first work to address fundamentalism from a woman's perspective, and is sure to become a classic in the fast-growing field of gender studies.
