Description: "In this paper, I examine some issues that mark the relationship of Indian feminism to Indian nationalism in the postcolonial phase and explore the ways in which pioneering work on feminism and nationalism in Asia suggests lines of enquiry that can help us understand not just our own politics of location but the limits nationalism places in mobilising resistance against the repressive practices of nation-states in South Asia."
