RANI LAKSHMI BAI
The woman who stood up to fight for her legacy, the one who became the icon of conflict against the British Raj, was born in 1828. Even today, she is remembered for her bravery and is one of the most important figures of the Revolt of 1857.
A prominent personality in Indian politics, Indira Gandhi was born in 1917. She’s the first and only woman who served as a Prime Minister of India. However, her moment of fame came from the fact that she declared a state of emergency when her own government was being threatened. The threats came from within her own party. To fight that, she formed her own party within hours and disavowed what we knew as Indian National Congress before that.
