This pioneering and innovative study paces women in India at the height of colonial rule at the centre of analysis. Drawing upon rare English and Marathi archival materials, Padma Anagol makes a compelling case for the birth of Indian feminism before the coming of Gandhi by also illustrating how collective movements to improve the status of women in India were based upon a consciousness of the inequalities in gender relations.[Compiler unknown], Striyan va Mulikarita Sangeet Sundar Gani [Songs of Women and Girls] (Ratnagiri: Damanskar, n.d.).
