Women in the Indian National Movement by Suruchi Thapar-Bjorkert

Book Description

This book examines the participation of the women of North India in the Indian nationalist movement, portraying how women's lives were significantly affected and reshaped by their involvement in the freedom struggle. The author discusses how women's participation in this mass movement was encouraged by 'the domestication of the public sphere' so that they could enter the public domain without being alienated from their domestic lives. She argues that the raised consciousness engendered by women's participation in the freedom struggle paved the way for a gradually evolving idea of women's emancipation.

Women in the Indian National Movement by Suruchi Thapar-Bjorkert Women in the Indian National Movement, Paperback (January 2015)

Most studies of the role of women in the Indian national movement have concentrated on the contribution made by only a handful of women leaders such as Sarojini Naidu, Vijaylakshmi Pandit, and more. This book focuses on the nationalist participation of ordinary middle-class women in India's freedom movement, especially in the United Provinces.
