Patriarchy in the 21st century: a relevant or redundant concept?

Bhopal, K. (2003) Patriarchy in the 21st century: a relevant or redundant concept? Pakistan Journal of Women's Studies: Alam-e-Niswan, 10, (1), pp. 5-20.

Record type: Article


This paper examines research carried out in East London, UK (Bhopal, 1997). I have re-visited my data and attempted to provide a new analysis on the concept of patriarchy. I will argue that patriarchy is a relevant concept in the 21st century, but is affected by women’s location and spatial definition. This is also related to women’s experiences of culture and history, which influence the degrees and forms of patriarchy experienced by South Asian women in society.
