Our #IndianWomenInHistory profile for today is Mukta Salve.

#MuktaSalve was one of the first Dalits to openly criticise discriminatory caste and gender norms of 19th century India. She had no access to education until 1852, when Jyotirao and Savitribai Phule started their third girls’ school. After merely three years of schooling, Muktabai wrote her essay ‘About the Grief of Mahar and Mangs’, which would become one of the first works of Dalit literature.
