Shenoy-Packer Publishes New Book on Working Indian Women

Organizational and Multicultural Communication Professor Suchitra Shenoy-Packer recently published a new book, India's Working Women and Career Discourses: Society, Socialization, and Agency, with Lexington Books.

India’s Working Women and Career Discourses “investigates Indian working women's sense of the discourses surrounding work and careers. In interviews conducted with seventy-seven women across socioeconomic statuses, castes, classes, and occupational and generational categories in the city of Pune, India, women express how feeling bound by tradition confronts excitement about ongoing changes in the country. The work lives of these women are influenced symbiotically by India's sociocultural practices and the contemporary phenomenon of globalization.”
