Gender is not constituted outside of other power relations such as class, ethnicity and caste (in India). Nor is it simply a side-effect of these other relations. Gender, and in particular, the female body, can be regarded as a terrain in which other relations are 'transcoded'. As a result, the study of gender is central to the study of any other relationship of power and sociality, and needs to be 'moved in from the margins' as an 'add-on' to established discourses.
