Product ID: 304

Additional information






Pushpa Joseph








This Feminist historical reconstruction offers a scholarly approach to fill the gaps that are present in texts and traditions. Like a patch work quilt it weaves together available petite histories of women’s forgotten accomplishments and places them at the centre of discourse. In order to give voice to the silences and unleashes the hidden powers they contain, Indian Catholic women can utilize the historical reconstructive approach and creatively widen their historical imagination, because it places women at the centre of such feminist reconstructions.
