An NCPA Presentation in collaboration with Ideas Unlimited Productions
Anandibai Joshi, India’s first female physician, was a trailblazer. Despite being married to a man twenty years elder to her, who was also a hypocrite showing off his liberal attitude, Anandibai defied the prevailing patriarchal conventions and set sail to America to become the first Indian female MD physician in the year 1886. Her’s was not an ordinary feat. Her achievement paved the way for Indian females to see themselves beyond the household. It freed them from the shackles of restrictions and compulsions. It proved that females could have an identity other than that of a mother, wife, and daughter. That she can be her own being. An individual. It’s been 150 years since then. Have things really changed? Are the Indian women free? Free from the drudgery of the household chores?
Are they free to think of their own desires, wishes and needs? Dr. Anandibai – Like, Comment, Share tries to answer these questions.
