Description

While sexual violence is an area that is well mapped by feminist scholarship, this volume focuses on transgressive and marginalized
Sexualities.

It brings together writings on India that highlight the
transgression of norms – of heterosexuality, of feminine and masculine behaviour, of recognizably gendered bodies – that declare ungoverned desire to be illegitimate.

Sexualities also includes a selection of campaign documents from diverse sexuality movements in the country.
