Fernando Franco SJ, Jyotsna Macwan y Suguna Ramanathan eds: El columpio de seda, el universo cultural de las mujeres intocables de la India. Edición española de Valeria Méndez de Vigo (Barcelona: Editorial Icaria, 2006). The Spanish edition of ?The Silken Swing: The Cultural Universe of Dalit Women? brings to the reader the world of millions of Dalit women excluded by the caste system in India. The study, the outcome of three years of research by the Ahmedabad- based NGO Behavioural Science Centre in Gujarat, India, shows how women modify patriarchal exclusion to recover, not without effort, ways to develop their identities.
