The Pandita Saraswati of the British Raj - PART 1
DISCLAIMER: This episode touches on themes of violence against girls and women which some listeners may find distressing.
We're back with Episode 3 and I'm joined by the amazing Dr Padma Anagol to shed some light on the polymath Pandita Ramabai: India's First Female Social Reformer and Modernist...amongst many other things!
She falls under an umbrella of titles, so much so that I've had to split the episode into 2 parts! Part 1 looks at Ramabai's struggle in the religious environment of India, and being a woman didn't help either! How did being a Christian affect her path to fighting patriarchal constraints? What was wrong with Hinduism in her eyes? Find out!
