520    This book investigates how women's power and caste 
       cleavages often continue to transcend and crosscut the 
       boundaries of caste/tribe, gender, age, class and religion
       in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh It examines the gendered
       divisions of labor in rural communities and how 
       countervailing forces have restricted women's status and 
       roles in South Asia.|bThis book investigates how women's 
       power and caste cleavages often continue to transcend and 
       crosscut the boundaries of caste/tribe, gender, age, class
       and religion in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Building 
       upon recent formulations of South Asian gender discourse, 
       it explores the ways that perceived notions of women and 
       castified geographies are not only structured in complex 
       and localized relationships of dominance, but are also 
       constituted by practices of the state and central 
       governments. By examining both the particularities of 
       local women's efforts to improve themselves and the ways 
       that power is mediated, the author addresses the multiplex
       ways individuals both adapt and contest the hegemony of 
       the dominant structures
