Extraordinary Lives of Ordinary Women in the Bombay Presidency

An Exhibition

We look at the lives of women 100 years ago. In a largely patriarchal society, when education was believed to bring bad luck, when the age of marriage was under 9, and the life of a widow was too challenging to imagine, these women worked hard and passionately to bring about social change. Listen to their stories. See the world they lived in. Relive their journeys. And above all, join us in paying them homage and celebrating their lives.
