  • Islam, Gender and Self: Rethinking Transnational Belonging and
           Intersectional Experiences of Tamil Muslim Women in Singapore

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pavithra Nandanan Menon
      First page: 7
      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      Much has been written about Tamil diaspora as well as Muslim women in Singapore, but only separately. This exploratory article would aim to fill that empirical gap by focusing on a detailed ethnographic study of Tamil Muslim women in Singapore as gendered racialized bodies, thus examining the actualities and dilemmas of being visibly transnational Muslim women in a diasporic space by unpacking the interconnections between identity and belongingness. This work uses a trans-local lens to understand the transnational experiences and hybridized shape-shifting identities of Tamil Muslim women in a diasporic space like Singapore, thus reconceptualizing transnationalism and diaspora. Using an intersectional lens also gives a new edge in addressing the multiple loopholes and interconnections that come together to impact the everyday experiences of Tamil Muslim women in Singapore. This research would thus contribute to feminist literature and (Tamil diaspora) diaspora literature by exploring intersections of identities such as race, religion, and gender that interplay in relation to transnational belongingness from a female standpoint, that of the Tamil Muslim women in Singapore based on the everyday experiences and realities of the social structure within their local environment.

  • Menstrual Hygiene Management: Linking with Education and Development

      Authors: Barna Ganguli

      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      Menstruation is a very normal physiological process for every female falling in the reproductive age-group, but still it is considered a taboo and a subject seldom openly discussed in most of the developing countries worldwide and India is no exception.Menstrual hygiene is still the most challenging issue because being a conservative topic, not much is spoken and discussed about it, and that is how the menstrual hygiene management (MHM) becomes an important task. As this is related to the well-being of half of the population, it becomes utmost important to address the problem.It is seen that education has a direct impact on understanding hygiene and hygiene has a direct role to play in development. Thus, states with good social and economic indicators are better performers of MHM. The present article tries to explore the connection of MHM with that of education and development. To make a comparative study and to establish this direct relationship of education and development, four states have been selected—Bihar and Jharkhand, from lower-income groups, and Kerala and Karnataka, from higher-income groups.The article also lays stress on the fact that optimizing menstrual hygiene interventions will require an integration of both knowledge and better living conditions alongside an augmentation of access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in addition to the availability of affordable hygienic sanitary products. Finally, the article also recommends the government to enhance the coverage and utilization of public fund on the issue so that every woman between 15 and 49 years gets the advantage of MHM irrespective of her social strata.

  • ‘An Alternate Conclusion of Misadventure’: Construction of the
           Female Body in Rape Trial

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jayat Joshi
      First page: 61
      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      I aim to examine the discursive construction of the female body and the definitions of rape and consent in the language used in the Indian courtroom. In order to do so, I locate my analysis in two recent controversial judgements—Mahmood Farooqui v. State (Govt. of NCT of Delhi), 2017 and Vikas Garg and others v. State of Haryana, 2017—both of which reveal how judicial discourse produces female (and male) bodies as normalized sites of a distorted sexuality. Further analysis shows the limitations of legal grammar and semantics in envisaging the female body outside of categories existing in relation to men, and the failure of the judicial apparatus when such classifications crumble. To develop this analysis, I chiefly draw upon the writings of scholars of legal feminism and a scrutiny of reports of the Law Commission of India. The purpose of this article is therefore to arrive at an understanding of the subject of the law as not merely a theoretical, objective entity but as a product of a gendered, variable ideological context, thereby exposing the weaknesses of the linguistic construction of the female body and how it affects decisions of the courts.

      Authors: Sudesh Kumar

      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      The present article is based on empirical work carried out in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, where the women were displaced by the dam projects. The main objective of the study is to examine the socio-economic conditions of displaced women after being forcibly displaced from their ancestral home land. Dam projects are the symbol of the economic growth of a nation, but unfortunately, millions of people are being displaced by dam projects in India. What happened to their socio-economic condition' Are they properly resettled' Such questions are always unanswered. The respective government gives only monetary compensation to the whole family. It has been observed that after being forcibly displaced, the displaced women face a lot of socio-economic problems such as poverty, unemployment, being homeless, jobless, dowry issues, domestic violence and health issues.

  • Domestic Violence: An Additive to COVID-19 Crisis

      Authors: Ranjit Kumar Dehury, Janmejaya Samal

      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      The pandemic of COVID-19 is one of its kind in the history of pandemics around the world. Apart from creating ripples in its de facto biomedical spheres it also created a whole lot of social problems around the globe. The very common preventive measures that it advocates for such as physical distancing, quarantine and isolation created problems in several of the societies. These measures created problems of social stigma, discrimination, racism and others. In addition, lockdowns imposed by several governments around the globe made people stay at home without attending workplaces. As the lockdowns were stringent and continued for protracted period that led to several forms of domestic violence around the globe. Deviations in routine work life, sitting frivolously at home, use and abuse of different substances coupled with economic imbalance in families led to many different forms of intimate partner and nuptial violence in families. Many a time it happened so that the women could not access the help owing to above mentioned preventive measures that by default has to be imposed upon the citizens and they have to stay longer with the perpetrator without help. Many a time the woman cannot even leave away the perpetrator and take help in other places as she has other family liabilities and responsibilities of caring for the children and other family members. In addition, owing to the very nature of transmission of this disease they were not even entertained by authorities to stay at shelter homes in the name of physical distancing. This article discusses the impact of COVID-19 and resultant domestic violence in an Indian context.

  • Meetei Women in the Political Sphere of Manipur

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ningombam Rojibala
      First page: 99
      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      History has its testimony to the active participation of Meetei women during social and political crises in the conflict-ridden society of Manipur. The historic events of Nupi lal (women’s war) 1904 and 1939 during the British colonial period of Manipur and the nude protest by a group of Meetei women at the western gate of Kangla in 2004 are worth mentioning. Such an active engagement of Meetei women in the political sphere of society, which is considered to be the world of men, makes them appear to challenge the delineation of the two worlds—‘ghar and bahir’, the home and the world—delineated for women and men, respectively. While it would be facile to judge the status of Meetei women based on their ostensibly visible appearances, there is no simple answer to the question of whether they are/are not bound by the boundaries of the home and the world. This article investigates the nature of Meetei women’s engagement in the political sphere to see if their actions are in strict adherence to feminist political ideologies. This article also problematizes the straitjacketing of binaries of protector/protected, victim/agent, public/private and oppressor/victim.

      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      The article is an insightful and incisive reading of Professor Saikat Majumdar’s second novel, “The Firebird”. In a colloquial style, the critic starts off with her acquaintance with the novel and goes deep into the characters. By way of critically appreciating the work, she also brings up comparison with other novels of similar interests and shows how this novel is different from them. After all, culture and identity matter the most while judging the characters in all their intents and purposes.

      This paper demonstrates that malnutrition among children under the age of 5 years can be addressed by disseminating information and social and behaviour change communication. This paper discusses a social and behavioural change program implemented through a women’s self-help group under JEEViKA run by the Government of Bihar.

      Authors: Anita Khemka, Imran Kokiloo
      First page: 127
      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      Shared Solitude was born out of a literal and forced isolation as a result of a family emergency, coinciding with the very unplanned and brutal lockdown, enforced by a political system hell-bent on being seen as decisive. It made us question the status quo we had grown accustomed to and the dichotomy of our daily lives. One of our early sitters, Ishita echoed our views, ‘Living in lockdown has been a revelation. I have realized that [certain] relationships, having time to read, being with dogs, and having enough meaningful work in the day is enough for me—this is all I would like to keep in my life’. This burgeoning clarity and purpose about one’s life, we realized, was shared by many people. This project thus set out to excavate memory, the joyous and painful, and confronts the universal dilemma of ownership, possession and letting go.

  • Not All Time Is Money: Women’s Burden of Unpaid Work

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Aishwarya Bhuta, Mridula Muralidharan
      Pages: 95 - 108
      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Volume 5, Issue 2, Page 95-108, December 2020.
      Since the 1990s, India has been witnessing a downward trend in female labour force participation (FLFP). Feminist economists have argued that the invisible labour of unpaid household work is quintessential for the social reproduction of the labour force. Time-use statistics can be useful for estimating the value of unpaid work and lead policy responses towards increasing FLFP. This study analyses the report on Time Use in India-2019 to draw insights from data on women’s disproportionate burden of unpaid domestic and caregiving services. It is argued that this has implications for their participation in the labour market. The patriarchal structure of the family pushes the onus of domestic labour on women. This confines them to home-based, poorly remunerated and informal work, or excludes them from the labour market. Interventions in the form of generating non-agricultural job opportunities in rural areas, establishing infrastructural support mechanisms in workplaces and encouraging female education and employment can not only stimulate FLFP but also help to address the crisis of jobless growth.

      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Volume 5, Issue 2, Page 109-118, December 2020.
      Human trafficking is a global phenomenon that affects people of all ages, races, gender and ethnicities. Bride trafficking is one of the worst forms of human trafficking. Many other social evils such as child marriage, domestic violence, bonded labour and prostitution are linked to bride trafficking. Bride trafficking is rampant in India since eons. Hence, there is a need to understand the underlying causes, consequences, effects and repercussions. This article explores the phenomena of bride trafficking within the larger framework of human trafficking and the available legal provisions to address it.

      Periyar’s Self-Respect Movement challenged the ideological hegemony of the Indian Independence struggle by demanding that equality between sexes and eradicating caste be put on an equal footing with national liberation. The author analyses a chapter in a novel written by Muvalur Ramamirthammal, a reformer from a devadasi community, who joined the Self-Respect Movement and became an ardent abolitionist of the devadasi system. In a dialogue between an ex-devadasi, who is represented as a Self-Respect activist, and a Brahmin man with Indian nationalist views, the former devadasi highlights the Self-Respect Movement’s definition of modern citizenship based on the principles of self-respect and dignity of all beginning with women. The article concludes by discussing the novel's wider connection to the Self-Respect Movement and why further research on both respectively is crucial.

      This article will explore the problem of acid attack as a gender-related crime. We analyse the socio-legal status of this crime as a form of violence in comparison of other forms of violence in the Indian context with the help of secondary data. The patriarchal notion of women is that the body is her only respect, and its violation is ultimate punishment. The number of acid attacks is increasing every passing year. The latest report of the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) 2016 recorded 283 incidents under the section of acid attack (‘Living in the shadows’- A project for acid attack victims by Haryana State legal Services Authority). It revealed that the most of the reported acid attack cases are due to refusal of marriage or rejection of romance. We discuss the consequences of acid attack and the legal framework available to address this problem.

      Cinema as an art form vividly captures the aspirations and everyday life-worlds of the people in India. In more contemporary times, suffused with the global language of desire, popular Indian cinema has sought to project the nation as a global power, while invisibilizing the faultiness of caste, gender, race and ethnicity. The films are increasingly shot in exotic locales with the lead characters leading enchanted lives. Innovative technology is utilized to narrate stories in which the farmer/worker/maid/other laboring people are conspicuous by their absence. Very few films possess the courage to buck this trend to recount tales of struggle entwined with the language of rights and justice. My article focuses on one such film—Pa Ranjith’s Kaala (Black). The film interrogates the muscular religiosity, caste and patriarchy on which the nation state is tethered. The cinematic journey also infuses the locale of Dharavi in Mumbai, home to thousands of migrant workers, with an agency of its own.
