Gandhiji's thoughts on women

" Woman is the companion of man, gifted with equal mental capacities. She has the right to participate in the very minutest detail in the activities of man and she has an equal right of freedom and liberty with him. She is entitled to a supreme place in her own sphere of activity as man is in his. "

- Excerpts from Gandhiji's speech at Bhagini Samaj, (Bombay) Mumbai, February 20, 1918.
