Performing Silence: Gender, Violence, and Resistance in Women's Narratives from Lahaul, India
Bhattacharya, Himika
Qualitative Inquiry, v15 n2 p359-371 2009
This article presents two different ways of understanding silence, through a discussion of women's narratives of violence from Lahaul, India. Here I illustrate how feminist ethnography works its way into re-conceptualizing silence as a tool women use to resist existing patriarchal discourses of honor, tribe and nation. (Contains 1 note.)
