Feminist Subversion and Complicity: Governmentalities and Gender Knowledge in South Asia

Feminist Subversion and Complicity brings together contributions from women in Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and India, who, while working at diverse kinds of institutions, are all closely involved in the intersection of development policy and gender. They offer critical feminist perspectives on governmental education and health projects, as well as legal reforms in these regions.   As a whole, the essays reveal that, in general, feminist politics are not merely assimilated into governmental projects, but as part of the process of assimilation, they often serve as a subversive interruption, destabilizing and contesting orthodox meanings and assumptions.
Maitrayee Mukhopadhyay works at the Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam, where she founded the gender and development team.
