Assessing role of educational institutions: Women and Indian national movement
From a historical point of view the most important aspect of Indian National Movement was that it saw mass participation by Indian women, women who had till then been confined to the domestic sphere. Their contribution in the independence movement is very significant. They were involved in diverse nationalist activities, both within and outside the home. Education by that time is viewed as a means to enhance the social presence of people and enable them to adapt to a changing external situation. This paper will primarily focus on the role of educational institutions in initiating women to take part in the freedom struggle. This paper will also explore the nature of involvement and the impact made by the involvement of women in the freedom struggle. The role of education and educational institutions can’t be neglected. It helps the women to shed their fears and come in the forefront. The patriotic feelings and teachings of the institutions develop a sense of self confidence among women and lead them to fore front. Though due to inadequate mention of their contribution in the historical literature their sacrifice remained unrecorded but there is no neglecting of the fact that these women’s through their participation accelerated the pace of nationalist struggle and drive the British out of the country.
