Dear colleagues,

I have been asked by a non indologist colleague for references on women
scholars in ancient and medieval India. Do you know of an article or a book
which would deal directly with this subject?

I have noted so far for him:

Witzel, Michael. 2009. Female Rishis and philosophers in the
Veda? Journal of South Asia Women Studies 11(1).


Mary McGee, Ritual Rights The Gender Implications of Adhikdra in L. Patton
ed Jewels of Authority, OUP 2002. 32-50 (esp. p.42)

but this is very meager and vedic...

I can't help but feel that there is a very obvious reference that I must be

thanking you in advance for your help,


Agathe Keller
