About the Book

It is widely believed that women in Manipur not only enjoy a high status, are accorded esteem and respect, participate actively in public life, contribute greatly to the economy, take a leading role in cultural and religious practices and festival. All the above facts are truisms, yet the status of Manipur women is riddled by internal contradictions apparent from the escalating rise of violence against women both at home and outside. The book analyzes some of these internal contradictions relating to women's status, conditions, opportunities and threats and to suggest a few measures towards a way forward because one quality common to all Manipur Women is Resilience and Courage.
