Abstract

Family strategies are often responses to external changes and macro developments influence the options available. Partition narrowed the physical spaces and enlarged the social spaces available to women thereby affecting the practice of 'parda' or seclusion, modified the impact of caste and regional culture on marriage arrangements, and widened the channels of educational mobility and employment for girls and women. This article, based on the life histories of Punjabi women in Delhi, seeks to demonstrate the change in the dynamics and structure of families as a result of external changes in society and the economy, with particular emphasis on the relationship between gender and education within the family.
