The Many Faces of Sundorem: Women in Goa presents a picture of the life styles of Goan women during the Portuguese colonial rule of 450 years (1510-1961).

Customs, traditions and rituals dominated the life of the Goan women. The State and the Church played a significant role in upgrading the position of women in Goa. The Portuguese rule seemed to have made a difference to the status of women. As a result the conditions of women in Goa were far better than their counterparts elsewhere in India.
