The Female Gaze: Essays on Gender, Society and Media
Frank but scathing in her remarks, Chatterji in this collection of essays voices those who have been muted but not silenced. She scrutinises the intertwined fabric of social and financial milieu that determines a woman’s place in society. Her observations on the systemic silence of women, the physical and mental abuse, the stereotypes that women are forced to live up to, are some of the many things that force you to stop and think. Ranging from issues that affect women and society to the representation of women in cinema, she goes through important societal issues one by one with a fine-tooth comb and analyses them through multiple lenses.
