#IndianWomenInHistory: Remembering The Untold Legacies of Indian Women
Today, we begin our #IndianWomenInHistory campaign where we will profile legendary #IndianWomen for the whole of March , which is also globally celebrated as #WomensHistoryMonth Our first post is about #TarabaiShinde. Tarabai Shinde (1850–1910) was a feminist activist who protested patriarchy and caste in 19th century India. She is known for her published work, Stree Purush Tulana (A Comparison Between Women and Men), originally published in Marathi in 1882. The pamphlet is a critique of upper-caste patriarchy and is often considered the first modern Indian feminist text. It was very controversial for its time in challenging the Hindu religious scriptures themselves as a source of women's oppression, a view that continues to be controversial and debated today.
