Anglo-Indian Women: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow


  • Cheryl-Ann Shivan


Cheryl Shivan's article that follows the historical Anglo-Indian trajectory and concludes with a question about the role of Anglo-Indian women in the future. She questions whether Anglo-Indians are doing enough, why are they content to preserve the status quo. Should they be demanding that constitutionally Anglo-Indian mothers be recognized as furthering the lineage of the community, to increase its numbers and prevent it's disappearance into the communities they sprang from, is a question she asks. Cheryl focuses on the aspects of Anglo-Indian women's historical participation in the community with scholarly honesty.
