  • Daughters of the Tharu identifies and examines the cultural conditions and circumstances that influence the process of educational decision-making for girls in Nepal, recognizing and studying the significant, yet often forgotten, voices of women. Situating women's lives within the context of their families, neighborhoods, region, and country, Maslak explores the cultural and sociopolitical conditions that shape, mold, and dictate individual agency, conditions that determine the educational choices women make for their daughters. This book seeks to go beyond the existing educational participation literature by exploring how ethnic identity, ethnic interaction, religious beliefs, and religious rituals function as interweaving socio-cultural forces in the community, and how familial relations in the home are influenced by the power structures that subsume gender roles.
