Chapter Summary

The author attempts to reflect and draw together the different complexities that make up themes in this book. She argues that narrowing the focus to include only water and water development is futile, because when we deal with household water in Musharafah are dealing with the entirety of women's performance, experiences, the structure of significance and identities. Social organisations of the village were kept up because people followed rules, but they only did so insofar as they were practical in their life situation. Interpreting the totality of water is an unstable project; in the midst of flux and duration there is an analytical tension. Women like Um Fathi who were initially positive to the pipes in the village, find that they are particularly vulnerable to new management methods that are introduced in the wake of economic liberalisation.
