Editorial Reviews

Review


"Women's Lives, Women's Rituals in the Hindu Tradition is an enticingly rich collection. The theme of women's ritual performance and its challenges to and conformity with domesticity set the stage for a range of observations and analyses. Making impressive use of this range, the volume describes from a variety of contexts how religious performances can enhance as well as curtail women's agency and autonomy. Naturally of benefit to students and scholars interested in the rituals and lives of Hindu women, the collection is also a great resource for investigating the vast and variegated nature of Hindu traditions." --Corinne Dempsey, author of The Goddess Lives in Upstate New York: Breaking Convention and Making Home at a North American Hindu Temple and Kerala Christian Sainthood: Collisions of Culture an Worldview in South India.
