The three insightful essays in this volume offer a detailed account of women who are active in the RSS. It analyses differences in their, and the RSS’ articulation of the place that women occupy in their ideology, in symbolic space, and in a Hindu Rashtra.
Based on carefully researched archival material, secondary sources, including RSS publications and documents, and personal interviews, this is a theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich contribution to an analysis of the nation and the RSS.
