Sophia Duleep Singh (1876-1948) A British-Indian princess, suffragette, and political activist who was born into royalty and went on to use her privilege and status to fight for women’s rights and Indian independence.

Singh was born into a royal Indian family and grew up in England. She was a goddaughter of Queen Victoria and was well-connected in British society. Despite her privileged background, she was politically and socially aware and was deeply committed to fighting for women’s rights.

Singh became involved in the suffragette movement in the early 20th century and was a prominent member of the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU), a militant organization dedicated to securing the right to vote for women. She used her position and status to raise awareness about the cause and was an active participant in demonstrations and rallies.

In addition to her work as a suffragette, Singh was also an advocate for Indian independence and was involved in the Indian National Congress, a political organization dedicated to securing independence from British rule. She used her position and influence to raise awareness about the cause and to support the independence movement.

Singh’s life and achievements have been widely celebrated and she is remembered as a pioneering political activist and feminist who used her privilege and status to fight for social justice and equality. Despite the challenges she faced as a woman of colour in a male-dominated society, Singh was a trailblazer who inspired future generations of women to fight for their rights and to use their voices to effect change.
