Description
About the Book:

This anthology brings together the writing of some Indian women who made pioneering social and literary contributions during the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Traversing a wide canvas, the excerpts taken from letters, tracts, diaries, magazines, articles, autobiographies, short stories, and even speeches discuss theatre, dance, travel, and personal experience, while other dwell on social issues, doctrinal problems, orthodox practices, and the position of women in society. The book will interest anyone interested in women's literature of modern India.

About the Author:

EUNICE DE SOUZA retired as head of the department of English, St Xavier's College, Bombay. She is an established poet and writer.

LINDSAY PEREIRA is currently pursuing a PhD from the department of English, University of Bombay.

Experts from Reviews:

'Woman's Voices can be read for pleasure alone, or for considering the wide range of women's writing (personal letters, letters to editors, letters to friends in jail, reminiscences, columns in newspapers, fiction, exhortations).…The lucid and informed introduction…places the individual pieces as well as the collection in historical context.'

-The book Review

'An invaluable source book. The writing of Toru Dutt, Pandita Ramabai, Cornelia Sorabji, Sarojini Naidu, Rokeya Sakhawat Hosssain, Ruttie Jinnah, Ela Sen, Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay, Amrita Sher-Gill, Santha Rama Rau and many lesser known writers are represented here.'

-The Statesman

'These writings…provide a window into how the women themselves were reacting to this so-called women's question…It is a commendable effort in putting into one volume well-known personalities like Toru Dutt, Pandita Ramabai, Cornelia Sorabji and Sarojini Naidu, along with the lesser known Herabai Tata, Shovana Devi, and Iqbalunnisa Husain.'

-Hindustan Times

'As interesting as the content of their writing is the life of the writers themselves, compiled in brief biographical sketches by coeditor, Lindsay Pereira….The contributions are delightful, thought-provoking and varied…'

-Verve

'Women's Voice offers us a wide range of writing in English fiction, including stories for children, autobiographies, articles, letters -private and public…An informative Introduction to the period by Eunice de Souza adds to the usefulness of the volume.'

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
