Abstract

Indian tradition has for the major part encouraged the subservience of women, applauded their self-denial, and promoted their subjection. But it was only towards the colonial period that women’s question began to receive attention. This paper presents an analysis of attitudes developed out of contact with the liberal philosophy of colonial rule and how these attitudes shaped the women’s question in India. It was out of these attitudes that reform and nationalist movements came into existence which had a formative influence on feminist movement in India. It is in this background that this paper attempts to present a picture of how women’s movement acted in conjunction with such reform and nationalist programmes during the colonial rule.
