Feminism may sound like a new-age idea in India today, but the movement emerged in Mumbai in the 19th century, even if in a small way. The catalyst for Indian feminism was the precinct of Gamdevi. Its location at the edge of the Native Town in close proximity to the new European area of Malabar Hill brought about a confluence of Indian and Western thought. In the 19th-century and early-20th-century, pioneering women from this part of town broke the shackles and barriers imposed by a patriarchal society to forge their own paths in diverse fields - medicine, art, education, philosophy, politics, music, theatre, business and social service - enabling the women of Mumbai of today to enjoy the freedoms they do. Hear their inspiring stories on our #WonderWomen walk.
