AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This paper tries to review and reassess the tribal situation with special reference to the tribal women in India and Australia. It is an attempt to locate the 'Aboriginal woman' question in the context of women's movement in both countries. In Australia the women's movement, on the whole, has not been successful in incorporating Aboriginal women into its concerns and activities. Relations with Aboriginal women have constituted a problem with the women's movement. Despite many differences in socio-cultural set up the stories of Anil Gharai and those of Australian Aboriginal writers share many common traits and cut across cultural differences. It establishes the theory of pan-aboriginality that exists in countries that possess a sizeable population of indigenous people.' (Author's abstract).
