Women of the Raj

India in the late 19th century was considered the Jewel in the Crown of the British Empire. Lured by the romance of India, all kinds of women went to India. Some were in search of a husband; some in search of adventure and others were on a mission for God. Recent history portrays white women as cultural imperialists. Were they? Or were they agents of social change?

Getting Started
1. Start your Group: Anyone can start a Discussion Group – seek out some like-minded friends or put up a notice in your local library, bookshop or workplace. There are many existing groups that welcome new members. If you wish to start a new group to suit your situation WEA can help you, please note that a minimum of 6 people is required to start a new discussion group.
2. Arrange the meetings: New groups need to decide where and when to meet, and for how long – whatever best suits members' particular situations.
3. Run your Group: Choose a secretary to liaise with WEA and your tutor, a Discussion Leader to chair meetings, a reporter to take discussion notes to send to your tutor, and maybe a librarian to look after the books.
