The resurrection of geography now plays a significant role in social science theories. This volume critically analyses the debate surrounding the social and conceptual formations of 'space 'and 'place' to understand how such boundaries intersect with gender. The essays argue that spaces and places are social and ideological constructs. What is significant is the implication of power in the production of spaces and places as they are ideologically organized to maintain established hierarchies. Thematically organized, the essays examine a range of topical issues such as national and transnational identities, women's livelihoods, migration, violence against women, mining, environment, poverty alleviation, and family, as also the engagement of market forces with patriarchal structures, the fluidity of the 'public' and the 'private' and everyday negotiations and contestations, in the context of the South Asian countries. The volume explores the impact of global processes on the idea of locality and its consequences for the lives of women in countries like India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal.
