dc.description.abstractPakistan's Hindu women of the Thar Desert have robust, complex notions about what it is to be female. In their gender-divided society, female ideology intersects with, even as it diverges from, that of their men. Throughout life, these women experience shifts in value, role and expectation and are reliant on female solidarity both in their natal and affine families. Seniority and sons bring considerable influence. Within the veils of personal head covering, female space and ideology, women act as ritual specialists and bear the responsibility for maintaining morally upright households. Senior women exert power in decision-making for their families in areas of health care and education. This thesis employs mixed genre writing, to represent and analyse the internal dynamism of a small group of such women with whom I had opportunity to live from 1983-1987. Personal and identifying place names have been changed to protect the privacy of these individuals.en
