Jayawardena was born and had her secondary education in Sri Lanka and later decided to enter the London School of Economics in She graduated with a degree in political science in and then qualified as a barrister from Lincoln's Inn, London in In she received a Ph. Jayawardena taught political science at the University of Colombo in Sri Lanka from to , when she retired as associate professor. She plays an active role in women's research organizations and civil rights movements in Sri Lanka, and is the Secretary of the Social Scientists' Association, a group of concerned scholars working on ethnic , gender , caste and other issues  which she helped set up in the 70s with other academics and researchers.
At 86 years old, Jayawardena still continues to make connections between the world of academia and her community, the different ethnic and religoujs groups in Sri Lanka, and feminists in South Asia and the world.
Feminism and Nationalism in the Third World first started as a bunch of lecture notes jotted down on the journey between The Hague, where Jayawardena worked at the time, and her then home in Brussels during the early s. Using her lecture notes, she was preparing materials for a course on women and development that later would became one of the known books in the feminist movement.
Originally published in , it later became the Feminism and Nationalism in the Third World and was republished with a foreword by Rafia Zakaria . Jayawardena provides an inside look to the feminist movements in Asia especially women fighting against colonial powers. She follows the stories of female warriors in China and Korea as well as the stories of men who "questioned women's restricted lives," like Ibn Rushd and Li Ruzhen.
There were two goals to writing this book. The second goal is to challenge the belief that women are liberated just because they have access to education and professional development. There is still lack of political and economic equality for women. Jayawardena asserts that having women leaders does not mean that the patriarchy has been done away with or that women are not oppressed within these roles. Jayawardena also addresses the intersection of nationalism and women in this book.
For Jayawardena, nationalism means the fight against imperial powers and this includes women who participated in the national liberation movement. Women all over the world, especially in the third world, were empowered through nationalistic movements that helped them earn their freedom from the colonial powers.
Another popular book of Jayawardena's is The White Woman's Other Burden which analyzes the actions of white women who challenged the gender roles set by the British occupation of South Asia. Jayawardena specifically looks at the work of Katherine Mayo, Helena Blavatsky, Annie Besant, Madeleine Slade, Mirra Richard, and the countless others who fought for equality for all women during colonialism .
Also, Jayawardena has had her books and articles translated into Sinhala and Tamil. Ethnic and Class Conflict in Sri Lanka: The Emergence of Sinhala-Buddhist Consciousness Kruks, R.
