Indian Suffragettes focuses on the different geographical spaces in which Indian women were operating and the various transnational networks they participated in. It covers the period from the 1910s up until 1950. It shows how Indian suffragettes positioned themselves and were represented in these locales and invoked varying identities, whether regional, national, imperial, or international, in the context of debates about the vote. Crucially and significantly, this case study of Indian suffragettes analyses how these global connections had an impact on social and political change in the Indian subcontinent, highlighting the under-researched field of Indian mobility at a time when they were colonial subjects
