Stree

Stree is an imprint of Bhatkal and Sen, a joint partnership of the Bhatkals of Popular Prakashan and Mandira Sen. Founded in 1990, Stree publishes on gender studies, focusing on the status of women in India, in English and in Bengali. Their concern is to reflect on the diverse problems that confront women. They publish on the fundamental issues facing women in India today: work and the workplace, whether organised or unorganised, paid or unpaid, class relations and political subjectivity, marriage and the family, and the impact of religion, culture and ideology. Stree translates women’s writings, fiction and nonfiction, from the Indian languages into English. They also plan studies on the past which will suggest guidelines for an understanding of the present.
