  • Role of Women and Commercial Sex Workers in the Indian Freedom Struggle

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Atanu Mitra
      Abstract: ANTYAJAA: Indian Journal of Women and Social Change, Ahead of Print.
      Medinipur was one of the leading districts of India in the annals of struggles against British colonialism. These struggles began with the violent Adivasi rebellion, popularly known as Chuar Bidroha or Choar Bidroha in 1776 to the non-violent Quit India movement called by Mahatma Gandhi in 1942 including the communist party led peasant movement (Tebhaga) of the 1940s. The role of women in general and commercial sex workers in particular of erstwhile Medinipur in the Indian freedom struggle have been discussed in this article. Commercial sex workers dedicatedly participated in the nationalist movements knowing it fully well that their profession would be harmed. It may be mentioned that almost no study has been done so far to discuss particularly the active role of commercial sex workers of Medinipur in the Indian freedom struggle. Their sacrifice was not recorded so far by our nationalist historians till the beginning of platinum jubilee celebration of Indian Independence. This article depicts the crucial role played by these women against the ruthless atrocities perpetrated by the British Raj.

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

      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

      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

      Authors: Jayat Joshi

      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.

      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.

      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

      Authors: Ningombam Rojibala

      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.

  • Shared Solitude

      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.
