Abstract
The book by a well-known indologist and expert on gender problems Eugenea Yurlova “Women of India: Traditions and Modernity” (M., 2014) deals with problems and achievements of India women in the historical context - from ancient times until present day.During 65 years of independent development women of the country achieved noticeable results in its social, political and cultural life. But majority of Indian women is still in the grip of old conservative traditions. Women’s empowerment and attempts to secure equal rights with men or have a ‘love marriage” often result in confrontation with nested customs of subjugating and ensuing violence and even ‘honor killings’ in the name of dignity of the family and caste. Nevertheless the whole picture isn’t so gloomy: the more Indian society is becoming democratic, the more women are achieving dignity and important status.
