Tóm tắt: Has the battle for equality solved problems of woman in society? Has the cry for woman’s emancipation from her degraded condition liberated women in India and in the world? This volume analyses the life and works of one of the foremost Indian women writers, Ashapurna Devi (1905–1995), from the point of view of her as an author of an ex-colony, and the changes and stirrings of the new social order she saw as India moved from the colonial to the postcolonial times. While remaining sensitive to her feminist insights, it is underscored that the meaning of feminism within the Indian discourse needs to be expanded in terms of the particular social and political reality of the times. The volume, therefore, as it examines her trenchant critique on certain gendered assumptions prevalent in society, equally brings to the fore Ashapurna’s comprehensive understanding of men and women not as ‘opposing parties’. Expanding the meaning of feminism along the lines of human solidarity and hopes for future, by maintaining difference from exclusiveness and deference for a culture that transcends the male–female dichotomy, this study shows that feminism is a vibrant contemporary force in India. Through Ashapurna’s literary feminist activism this volume invites rethinking of Indian feminism as much as its praxis, which is not the rejection of patriarchal culture as a solution to the ‘women’s question’. In fact, feminism in the context of India that has its roots in the antahpur days is an advanced social and literary discourse on the empowerment of women.
