Victims Or Criminals

This fascinating exploration of female victims and criminals in colonial India lies at the intersection of several fields: colonial history, women's studies, Indian studies, political economy, and the history of crime and punishment. Using an interdisciplinary approach, Dr. Singh argues that women's crime in India was largely induced by colonial intervention, oppression, and exploitation and that the punishment for such crimes was used as a means of social control and repression. Moreover, "deviant behavior", "immorality", and "criminals" - as these terms were defined by the state alone - were most often applied to the lower castes of women, a practice that not only points to conspicuous gender inequality and classism, but also to the very thin line between victim and criminal, between abuse/violation of women and supposed judicial sanctioning for their "crimes". This analysis of women and criminality under colonial rule sheds light on similar transformations currently taking place in many Third World countries as it simultaneously contributes to the discussion of the "battered women syndrome" in the United States.

Domesticity In Colonial India

By the 1880s, Hindu domestic life and its most intimate relationships had become contested ground. For urban, middle-class Indians, the Hindu woman was at the center of a debate over colonial modernity and traditional home and family life. This book sets this debate within the context of a nineteenth-century world where bourgeois, European ideas on the home had become part of a transnational, hegemonic domestic discourse, a 'global domesticity.' But Walsh's interest is more in hybridity than hegemony as she explores what women themselves learned when men sought to teach them through the Indian advice literature of the time. As a younger generation of Indian nationalists and reformers attempted to undercut the authority of family elders and create a 'new patriarchy' of more nuclear and exclusive relations with their wives, elderly women in extended Hindu families learned that their authority in family life (however contingent) was coming to an end.

Drawing on long-neglected travel writings by British women in India, this study looks at different aspects that women focus on as opposed to men, particularly in their encounters with Indian women in the zenana. Located at the cross-roads of feminist theory and colonial discourse theory, the book examines the power relations inscribed into the traveller's gaze.
