The two trends are a good illustration of the phenomenon Ammu Joseph's book describes. Women are being simultaneously described as too weak and too strong. Too meek and too militant. The truth, however, lies somewhere in between. This book, as the author makes clear in the preface, is "not meant to be a who's who of Indian women in journalism (but)...an exploration of the world of journalism in India through the eyes of women situated at different vantage points in the profession". It is, in other words, an honest effort to look into the 'in-between' areas and see what makes the women journalists' world tick.
