I wish there had been a bit more in the book about survey design - how did they find the women to interview? what are these womens demographic characteristics? are the women they interview overrepresenting certain classes/groups, are they basing their analysis on a single interview, or multiple interviews with similar themes?, etc.
This is a good attempt at telling the story of women during partition. Though it is thin with regard to statistics, it does provide oral histories that bring to life the suffering of women who were both cast as prostitute (when they belonged to Other communities) and symbols of national honor (when belonging to "our" community). The only problem that this book suffers from is a serious bias against Pakistan.

Partition-related massacres and migrations represented a human tragedy of enormous proportions.
As an event of shattering consequence, the Partition of India remains significant today. While Partition sounds smooth on paper, the reality was horrific. More than eight million people migrated and one million died in the process. The forced migration, violence between Hindus and Muslims, and mass widowhood were unprecedented and well-documented. What was less obvious but equally real was that millions of people had to realign their identities, uncertain about who they thought they were. The rending of the social and emotional fabric that took place in 1947 is still far from mended.
