2. British officials and missionaries in the nineteenth century generally believed they were “rescuing” Indian women from degrading and barbaric customs forced on them by Hinduism. Discuss two cases of colonial intervention in practices relevant to Indian women (for example: sati, infanticide, widow remarriage, the age of consent, the breast cloth controversy). For each case explain what the British saw as the problem, what they proposed or legislated, and how these measures affected women as well as the Indian social reform movements.
