    DescriptionThis selection of textual constructions of Bengali women in the colonial era, is arranged round three recurrent motifs: the "good" woman; the "other" woman; and the "heroic" woman. The compilation is designed as an overview, as well as providing a critical assessment of the multiple discourses of the patriarchal social order which claim to speak on behalf of women, more specifically, the "bhadramahilas". It also aims to show how power produces certain normative ideals, and how these same ideals are continually questioned, subverted and put to the test.
