sexual allure of the revolutionary heroine was used to recruit young
          men to the cause. The revolutionary women have described
          themselves as sacrificing all the things a woman wants – marriage,
          children and home—for the country. No one, including the
          revolutionary women themselves, considered revolutionaries
          representative of Indian womanhood.
     •    The demonstrations organised by the women in cities did little to
          generate a feminist consciousness. They marched and picketed in
          sex-segregated groups, usually wearing distinctive orange or white
          saris to emphasise their purity and sacrifice. Their directives came
          from the Congress Committees. Rural women, unless they were
          widows, protested with their families. Male guardianship prevailed
          even though the Indian freedom movement was not characterised by
          “patriarchal nationalism.” Women could “come out” because the
          house was on fire. The expectation was that once the fire was out,
          women would go back inside the house.
