Full Description


This book presents new trends in writing about women in Southeast Asia, applying concepts of power in unusual areas. What really are the impediments to women sharing power? How do Vietnamese ideals of romantic love that effectively subordinate women to men? Frank interviews explode the myth that marital rape does not happen in Indonesia. There are historical and contemporary examples of the liberating influence of new work for women, and the story of how the Indonesian state spread the message of family planning. And delving into the discipline of cross-cultural women's studies itself is a considered perspective on power relations between the Western scholar and the Asian women she is studying.
