" 1879 – 1949 There was little about Sarojini Naidu that appeared revolutionary. She was a poet who loved to dress in colorful clothes and clinging silk saris. ” Yet Sarojini was courageous enough to stand weaponless before enemies who were armed.
Her enemies said she should have kept to her place as a woman. Today, however, it is clear that Olympe de Gouges created history by writing an extensive document demanding women be given exactly the same rights as men. These demands are said to be the first of their kind; she made them more powerfully and completely than anyone else before.
