Bharat Stree Mahamandal

Saraladebi Chaudhurani was an extraordinary female leader in action, one who could have towered the nationalist movement had she not withdrawn from the scene.

She was niece of Kabiguru Rabindranatha Tagore. She was married to Arya Samaji leader, Shri Ram Bhuj Chowdhry. She was one of the earliest women freedom fighters of India, who participated in the ‘Swadeshi Movement’ as well as in the revolutionary movement of the country. She was born in 1872 and joined active politics in 1915. In 1915 she organized ‘All India Revolutionary Party’ and secretly assisted the revolutionaries and continued her secrete activities through another group ‘Sohard Society’.

In Lahore, Sarala organised the Bharat Stree Mahamandal, the first all-India women’s organisation.
