Dangerous Women

The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) here at the University of Edinburgh has been running a blog called the Dangerous Women Project. It showcases daily posts, beginning on International Women’s Day 2016 and ending a year later, that provide a variety of perspectives on the question “What does it mean to be a dangerous woman?” There have been contributions from authors, poets, artists, academics, lawyers, and even the First Minister of Scotland. Today was my turn, to put the case for seeing Draupadi, heroine of the Indian epic Mahabharata, as a wonderfully and helpfully dangerous woman. You can read my post here.
