Cornelia Sorabji has made history in her own right as she became India’s first woman to get a degree from Bombay University in law and further went on to become India’s first woman to study law in Oxford University, London.
Cornelia Sorabji dedicated her life to social reforms in the country in order to uplift the conditions of multiple marginalized female sections such as “pardahnashins” in the country, the veiled women who were oppressed and denied any male interaction outside their homes.
