sharmila rege – “the hegemonic appropriation of sexuality: the case of the lavani performers of maharashtra”
That post about India makes me so mad, because it completely erases the history of the feminist movement in India. Better than Wikipedia tho, are: History of Doing' by Radha Kumar, chronicling the women's movement in India between the 1800 & 1990s. Uma Chakravarti's Gendering Caste, Anything by Sharmila Rege on Dalit Feminism, Gautam Bhan-Queer Politics in India, Seeing like a Feminist by Nivedita Menon, Women's Studies in India ed. Mary John. I could go on.
