Description

The Path-Breakers

Pandita Ramabai – Changing the lives of child brides and widows

Anandibai Joshi – First lady doctor

Rukhmabai – Inspired the ‘age of consent’ act

Muthulakshmi Reddy – First Woman Legislator

Anasuya Sarabhai – Pioneer of the labour movement in India

Janaki Ammal – First Indian woman botanist

Anna Mani – First woman meteorologist

Ramabai could recite 18000 Shlokas from the Bhagat Purana but her learning, her true understanding of the scriptures did not give her the freedom to break any of the cruel rules prescribed by a patriarchal system for Brahmin women, particularly for widows.

Muthulakshmi Reddy got the permission of the Maharaja of Pudukkottai to study in his college but when she would walk on the road she was pelted with shoes for daring to study!

14-Year-old Anandibai Joshi lost her infant son at birth because women could not go to male doctors. Instead of succumbing to her sorrow, the young girl made up her mind to become a doctor herself.
