What’s a common thread that connects remarkable women such

as Tun Tun, Bibha Chowdhury and Pandita Ramabai?

That they were born, lived and worked between the late-nineteenth and mid-
twentieth centuries, when being a woman was a challenging experience, shaped by

caste, religion, place of residence, class and occupation. These women dared to go
against social conventions and made their mark in traditionally male-dominated
spaces and professions, paving the way for the women of today.
A Star Named Bibha and Other Stories is a collection of short biographies of thirty
such trailblazing Indian women who have broken the glass ceiling, and done it in
style. Read about Durgabai Kamat, Amrit Kaur, Amrita Pritam, Fatima Beevi and
many other such inspiring women of India.
