Abstract: Sarojini Naidu symbol of Indian womanhood and a great freedom fighter was born at the time wherein the woman's role was cast in narrow mould, hemmed in with all sorts of restrictions. 1 However Sarojini Naidu "through her eloquent oratory and strategic campaign against British domination and for sexual equality, actively proved to her traditionally male oriented society that women as well as men could be leaders and responsible citizens in times of turmoil and in times of peace. " Though there were some women who took up the cause of women to fight for their rights, it was Sarojini Naidu who provided the thrust which was needed to advance the treatment of women in India. Being a modern 'liberated' woman, she made relentless efforts for the cause of women 's emancipation.
