Illustration for article titled Have You Heard About the Asian Suffragettes?

I had not. Asian Suffragettes — Women Who Made a Difference came across my Twitter feed this afternoon. It appears to have originally been published back in January, so I apologize if it's already been covered.


It's a fairly brief blog post but it is a very interesting little narrative about South Asian women refusing the label of victim and bolstering the suffragette movement in both the UK and India at the turn of the last century.

It primarily focuses on two women in particular, Sophie Duleep Singh and Bhikaji Cama, whose activism was both impressive and inspiring. You can read the whole post here.
