About Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay

About (Profile/Biography):
Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay, a well-known Indian social reformer, was born in India. She was an important social reformer who helped revive handicrafts, theatre, and handlooms to raise the socioeconomic position of Indian women. Her parents were active in the time's liberation movement and progressive thinkers. After losing her father while she was a young child, Kamaladevi's mother was primarily in charge of providing for her academic training.

Following Gandhi's lead, Kamaladevi joined the Congress party in 1923 and began participating in the independence movement.
Kamaladevi served as an envoy for political independence for Indian women from the late 1920s through the 1940s and beyond.
In 1929, at her maternal uncle's house, she had her first exposure to politics. She also traveled to Berlin to attend the International Union of Women.
In the political reform movement and the fight for Indian independence, Kamaladevi was a key figure. Within a year of joining the Indian National Congress, she was named to the All-India Congress Committee.
Chattopadhyay first met Margaret Cousins, an Irish-Indian feminist who created the All India Women's Conference and served as its president from its founding in 1926 until Kamaladevi took over in 1936.
