This is a wide-ranging, frank and sensitively written portrait of women in Burmese society, the first of such studies to be written by a Burmese author. Mi Mi Khaing looks at women in all spheres of life and provides remarkable insights into a Third World country little known in the outside world. This book achieves a rare combination of the sociological with the personal.
