The study of feminism as a mark of feminist agency is examined across a range of feminist schol arship, followed by reflections on the concluding scene of Ashapurna Devi's novel in Bangla, Pratham Pratisruti, and ends with some conclusions based upon ethnographic work on Indian women and inheritance. The explorations of different sites of fiction and ethnography indicate that individual acts of women's resistance should be kept separate from the systemic changes that organised movements seek to effect.
