To explore women in South Asia, particularly in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. We will study traditional topics like patriarchy,  marriage and family,  gender and sexuality,  but also explore women as political actors,  intellectuals,  and professionals. This perspective will enable us to focus on the social and political dynamics of South Asia,  as well as the daily activities of ordinary Asian women.
