Drawing on fieldwork, Seemanthini Niranjana weaves together conceptual and ethnographic narratives to elaborate a theory of gender and space. The book includes accounts of: the domains and activities of women; cultural perceptions and experiences of the female body; gender and the ritual realm; The author also makes suggestions for formulating a ground for female agency within a body-space matrix.
