We have grown up reading about India’s freedom movement and the people who made it happen. But what sometimes gets lost in the pages of the big history books are the names of the women who took centre stage in that time, braving their way into a fight that was still typically known for being the man’s job.

These women not only fought the shackles of patriarchy but fought the shackles of British rule as well. Now it wouldn’t be fair to say that there is hardly any recognition of these women, given that even kids know the names like Rani Laxmi Bai, Matangini Hazra, Sarojini Naidu and Annie Besant.

But the actual list of women freedom fighters isn’t this short and there are so many more who deserve equal respect and recognition for their freedom struggle as much as the ones mentioned.
