Description

This was a young woman, Tarabai Shinde, introduced her booklet, A Comparison Between Women and Men, originally published in Marathi in 1882. This pioneering piece of feminist writing is translated into English by Rosalind O'Hanlon who also provides a substantial interpretative essay, explaining the historical context and social significance of this extraordinary work. For anyone interested in the history of the women's movement in India, particularly during the colonial period, this is a rich, provocative and highly readable book. O' Hanlon's introduction is extremely well-researched and the notes that follow the translation show her eye for detail… As a book that gives the reader a clear picture of chauvinism at a time when few women had learned to stand on their own feet, it succeeds in establishing the fact that the spirit behind colonialism, and male domination was one and the same.
