By: Narayan, Deepa.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New Delhi Juggernaut 2018Description: xvi, 304 p.ISBN: 9789386228604.Subject(s): Feminism | Women - Indian | Social survey | Social life of women - IndiaDDC classification: 304.954 Summary: Do you pride yourself on being a strong woman? Do you aspire to be one or support one? Do you consider yourself a feminist? Chances are that you behave in ways that are exactly the opposite, as this path-breaking book argues. In this rigorously researched book, based on 600 detailed interviews with women and some men across India's metros, social scientist Deepa Narayan identifies seven key habits that may dominate women's everyday lives, despite their education, success, financial status and family background. These behaviours may seem harmless, but each one has enormous impact, and it means only one thing - that Indian women are trained to habitually delete themselves. Shocking, troubling and revolutionary, Chup will hold a mirror to yourself - and you may not like what you see. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/39078364-chup
