Presented here are some of Mahdur Kishwar's best essays, each tackling a topic of vital concern for Indian women today: dowry, unwanted daughters, the denial of co-ownership rights to wives, women's land rights, love and marriage, sexual harassment, living identities vs. acquired ones, and the politics of beauty contests. On an introspective note, she examines her estrangement from "-ism-driven" politics and her reservations about being lebelled as a "feminist".
