Responsible scholarship on women’s rights

Responsible scholarship that offers us a dispassionate, nuanced look at the various ways in which women (regardless of their attire) appropriate public space and assert their presence through social and political channels, not always formal, available to them in widely varying political and historical contexts, opens up whole new vistas for understanding — and valorizing — women’s ad hoc
attempts at self-empowerment.
