ABOUT THE BOOK

From pre-historic stages women have been tortured, raped, sold even to embrace death by committing suicide or accepting 'Sati' culture and were affected with other social and domestic violences. They were always considered as weakers than masculine world of muscles. Although in India; in the ages of the Vedas, women were equally participants in the rituals and also as composers of various hymns but gradually their stayals and activities were confined in domestic world. However, many of them came forward alone or with their counterparts to work for the development, to bring light in the darkness of the society. At the advent of Vaishnavism led by Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu women, despite performing all their domestic duties were involved in spreading Vaishnavism and glorified it. The book, originally written in Bengali by Dr. Uma Bandopadhyay were in two parts elaborating the lives of Vaishnavite women.

Vaishnava devotees translated in abridged and edited form of 108 lives of women in English. It is sure that thousands of women devotees still remain whom to be remembered.
