Independence Day 2021: Saluting India’s unsung women freedom fighters

India’s path towards independence has been a long, arduous one. The decades of freedom struggle saw many greats risk their lives and face oppression and torture at the hands of the British to ensure that future generations are able to live in a free and democratic country.

Among the many who fought for India’s freedom were fearless women, many not spoken about, who loved their motherland fiercely and gave all they had to fight for freedom and rights. This Independence Day, we salute 10 courageous women who have fought valiantly for India’s independence.
