Policy reports on the “status of women” constitute one of the most abundant archives on the world’s women in the second half of the twentieth century. This talk offered an account of and a reckoning with the promises and limits of the social scientific report through an analysis of archives of early “status of women” reports, focusing on reports produced in South Asia from the 1970s to the 1990s.
