Annie Besant, Irish women, who has greatly contributed to the progress of Indian Society! She was born at a time when women had very little say in any matters. However her mother had inculcated in her a strong sense of duty to society. She was an independent thinking woman – who believed in finding the truth and doing right by whomever she fought for and whatever she did.
She came to India in 1883; since then till she passed over in 1933 she championed a cause of human
freedom and worked towards her goal with her actions and writing. She was a freedom fighter, an
educationist, a philanthropist, and an author. Whatever she did she did with full conviction and it helped her to take forward her aim of ‘Human Freedom’.
