This year, there came out a big bibliographical work on Muslim women  
in India (or rather: South Asia) that may help:

Aftab, Tahera: Inscribing South Asian muslim women : an annotated  
bibliography & research guide / by Tahera Aftab. - Leiden ; Boston :  
Brill, 2008. - xl, 616 p. - (Handbook of Oriental studies = Handbuch  
der Orientalistik. Section 1, The Near and Middle East ; vol. 91). -  
ISBN 978-90-04-15849-8 / 90-04-15849-9 (Hardback)

All the best
