*This article is grounded in empirical work I conducted in India as a Benjamin A. Trustman research fellow during 1992 and 1993. I would like to thank Harvard University for providing me with that fellowship opportunity to connect my personal history with scholarly work in the way I have been able to do here. At Stanford Law School, several people have helped me put that work into provocative theoretical frameworks. In particular I would like to thank Janet Halley, Tom Heller, Sophie Pirie, and Margaret Jane Radin for their advice and encouragement. Friends and mentors Rhonda Copelon, Alda Facio, and Leti Volpp also provided valuable assistance with this project. Last, I would like to thank the women I met during my year in India who shared with me their experiences and inspired me with their creativity and courage.
