Born on 3 January 1831, Savitribai Phule was a social reformer and poet. Many of her poems were against discrimination and advised people to get educated. She is regarded as an important figure of the social reform movement in Maharashtra. Along with her husband, Jyotirao Phule, she played a major role in improving women's rights in India during the British Raj.
