Gender Politics in Asia: Women Manoeuvring within Dominant Gender Orders
Editor: Burghoorn, Wil; Iwanaga, Kazuki; Milwertz, Cecilia; and Wang, Qi;
This volume brings together an impressive array of internationally recognized scholars from around the world to examine the many facets of gender politics in Asia. Its central concern is how women in various gendered contexts in Asia position themselves in the (re)production of gender relations, and how they manoeuver in order to preserve or alter these. It covers fields as varied as the use of dress as a political weapon, the practice of healing as an indirect challenge to the dominant gender and political orders, and religious ordination as a struggle for equity in Buddhism.
