Institute of Management in Government (IMG), Thiruvananthapuram, as part of Public Lecture Series, is organizing a webinar.
Topic: ‘Women in Public Life in Kerala: History, Experience & Learnings‘
Speaker: J. Devika, Professor, Centre for Development Studies, Thiruvananthapuram
Time: 7 p.m. IST
Date: Tuesday, 15 December 2020
About the webinar: In contemporary Malayali commonsense, women’s presence in public life and public service is merely a fact of life that is taken for granted, something natural and expected in the process of modernisation. Indeed, this was one of the unspoken assumptions of the dominant liberal and leftist accounts of the history of 20th-century Kerala. However, nothing could be further from what the historical record, reconfigured from a feminist perspective, tells us. In this lecture, I reflect on the history of struggle through which Malayali women gained space in public life and the ambiguities to the entry.
