An essay on Mahatma Gandhi’s lifelong involvement with women’s issues – the strategies and methods he used for drawing women into the freedom movement, and the role that women played in evolving his philosophy of non-violent satyagraha. The essay also explores how while confronting the problem of mass mobilization, Gandhi became aware of women not only in terms of their problems but also as a powerful potential force in society, hitherto overlooked and suppressed.
