In the context of widespread resistance movements in India today, internationally known feminist scholar, human-rights activist, and author Ilina Sen analyzes the articulation of women’s voices within the movements and helps clarify the issues, debates, and relationships between these voices and other social movements. Sen says that as the women’s movement struggles with issues of theory and organization, it’s important to understand the use of women’s bodies as a space where contests of power are played out, as well as the possibilities and limitations of the state as an agency in the achievement of women’s equity. With her husband, human-rights activist Binayak Sen (who gained fame after being convicted of sedition, jailed, and freed on bail), Sen has worked for more than three decades among some of India’s most impoverished and socially stigmatized populations and manages the NGO Rupantar.
