Summary Has the battle for equality solved problems of woman in society? Has the cry for woman's emancipation from her degraded condition liberated women in India and in the world? This volume analyses the life and works of one of the foremost Indian women writers, Ashapurna Devi (1905-1995), from the point of view of her as an author of an ex-colony, and the changes and stirrings of the new social order she saw as India moved from the colonial to the postcolonial times
