Rs. 1,050.00

This volume attempts to capture some of the diversity to help move away from the homogenous images of Pakistani women that prevail in their representation in much of the world. The different chapters cover an entire range of localities, from rural to urban settings, and from small town to diaspora. Most of the chapters are driven by ethnographic data, while some are more theoretical. Yet, despite this diversity of place and approach, a number of cross-cutting themes emerge; themes that play a critical role in encouraging the reader to recognize the similarity and diversity of Pakistani women's experiences within a culture made up of a variety of ideologies that are often in conflict with each other.
