This monograph unravels the many strands of patriarchy in a lucid and accessible style.

By the author of the immensely popular 'Some Questions on 'Feminism and Its Relevance' in S. Asia, this booklet unravels the many stands of patriarchy in a lucid and accessible style. Presented in a question-and-answer format it looks at the introduction of patriarchy as an analytical category by feminists in theorizing women's subordination, and at how it is constituted; at its origin, and how it has evolved historically and in different parts of the world. It attempts to locate women's struggles for social change in a context where the patriarchal control of major social and political institutions makes for special forms of discrimination against women.
