Title: From 'Nurturing Mother' to ' Aggressive Protectors' : identity and agency of women of the Hindu right movement in India
Authors: Akanksha Mehta
Keywords: DRNTU::Social sciences
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: The Hindu Nationalist movement has gained massive popularity and support in the last few decades. An interesting aspect of the increased participation of people in this movement has been the active involvement of women in the movement. Women, who in the early decades of the formation of the Hindu Right wing organizations, remained largely invisible, have been engaging with the violence associated with the movement, carving out an independent "feminine" discourse within the larger patriarchal movement.
