Women’s organizations in pre-independence India
Women have been playing different roles in civilization since ancient times and these roles have been changing over the period. Research studies have demonstrated that women have raised their position from low to high and made a place in different sectors. In India women have been suffering from social, political and economic inequalities for a very long time. From the low points in medieval period, women suffered a lot and still struggling for gender equality. However the things started changing with the launching of some social reform movements in the 19th century. The educational experiments of the late 19th and early 20th centuries brought women out from household chores. Therefore women began to communicate with women outside their families and local communities. As a result of this various women’s organizations developed from the 19th century onwards.
