dc.description.abstractThis paper describes a case study into an NGO (non-governmental organisation) in India which has invented a goddess in order to effect transformations in many dimensions including personal, political, societal and symbolic. Based on primary evidence gained through participation and interviews, and secondary evidence from articles written by the organisation’s founder, the paper describes the background to the goddess’s creation and the desired transformations and explores some of the ways in which the goddess, through the ambiguity of her symbolism, creates a space for resistance
