Savitribai Phule, the revolutionary who still inspires millions

As the fight to preserve India’s Constitution rages on, with students at the forefront bravely taking on the Central government and opposing the recently passed Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), protesters are seeking inspiration from a woman leader from rural Maharashtra, who fought against huge odds for the rights of the oppressed and women’s empowerment, 120 years ago.

Women and LGBTQI+ groups in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Ranchi are organising a National March to protest against the CAA-NRC-NPR on Savitribai Phule’s 189th birth anniversary on Friday,  drawing strength from this brave, path-breaking woman who was centuries ahead of her time.
