This book is essential reading for those wanting to understand the position of South Asian women in society. It is a study of the Muslim women of Punjab, and how and why their position and role in society underwent a transformation during the British period. It traces the role of the government, Muslim reformers and intellectuals in bringing about this transformation. Jinnah’s role in linking the creation of Pakistan with the emancipation of Muslim women is key to understanding Muslim women’s entry into the mainstream of social and political life.
