Annie Besant (1847-1933) led the fight for the rights of women and laborers in her native England; later she worked with Mahatma Gandhi and spearheaded India's struggle for freedom. Theosophist Joy Mills describes her as "a feminist before the movement for women's rights was fully launched; she stood for freedom when half the world was held in the bonds of colonialism."
A student of India's spiritual traditions, Annie Besant was famed as an orator, author, and international President of the Theosophical Society.
