Elitist View of Women s Struggle in Pakistan

Elitist View of Women's Struggle in Pakistan Babar Ali ALTHOUGH reviews of books are usually non-controversial affairs, there are two important reasons why I feel an urgent need to respond to Jamil Rashid (EPW, December 5, 1987) and to make a stronger critique of the book Women of Pakistan: Two Steps Forward. For one thing, the book about 'women' of Pakistan is not at all about women, but a very small section of Pakistani women who represent a certain class and its ideology; furthermore, there is also a need to discuss the methodology employed by the authors of this book, which is quite clearly, not scientific (by any definition of the term) and is highly non-objective and unschoiarly.
