IN THE AFFLUENT and confident capitalist society of nineteenth century Gujarat, debates on social reform, including women’s reform, were conducted entirely by men, and were largely of academic interest since the historical transition to British rule had brought about little change in the existing social structure. In this context, the interventions of Sharadaben Mehta, a progressive educationist and social worker, represented a pioneering attempt by a woman in the early twentieth century at questioning, analysing and changing the conditions of women’s lives. The story of her life, as told by her in this memoir, is not that of an individual woman struggling to realize her personal aspirations, rather it is the story of an educated woman, equipped with independent views and fearless convictions, determined to open up a space for other women to enable them to experience the freedom and joy denied to them in their daily lives in patriarchal society. This book, made up of short pieces that she wrote at regular intervals for publication, tells the story of Sharadaben’s life and times, giving us insights into Indian history, viewed from the point of view of a participant in the freedom movement, and provides rich insights into the area of women’s education and the many campaigns in which they were involved. As well, it documents a life of intellectual companionship and action, one committed to women’s freedom and independence.
