This compilation of almost 100 maps is put together using data from the 1991 census of India. The Atlas maps a regional Geography of women and men, using indicators as diverse as literacy, education, voting patterns, cultural groupingsz, fertility rates, workforce participation etc. The aim is to provide information based on Census data which can help demonstrate the diversity of women s lives in India, and to provide it in such a way that readers/isers can link one set of facts with another, to look at what kinds of patterns emerge. In foregrounding women, the Atlas poses---implicitly---some key questions: how are knowledge and information constructed and communicated? Why has geography, for example, been so silent on the contribution of women to society? What kinds of layers of knowledge and information do we need to unpeel before we arrive at some information about the silent contributors---women. Supplemented by detailed appendices and tables, the Atlas throuws light on missing or invisible facts and information in a graphic, readable and acessible form which makes them useful to a wide range of readers.
