Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956), popularly known as Baba Saheb, was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist Movement and campaigned against social discrimination against Untouchables (Dalits), while also supporting the rights of women and labour. He was Independent India’s first law minister and the principal architect of the Constitution of India.

Dr. Ambedkar on Women:

“I am a great believer in women’s organization. I know what they can do to improve the condition of society if they are convinced. In the eradication of social evils they have rendered great services. I will testify to that from my own experience. Ever since I began to work among the Depressed Classes, I made it a point to carry women along with men. That is why you will see that our Conferences are always mixed Conferences.”

Dr. Ambedkar on Women:

“I measure the progress of a community by the degree of progress which women have achieved.”

Dr. Ambedkar on Women:

“Learn to be clean, keep free from all vices. Give education to your children. Instill ambition in them. Inculcate on their minds that they are destined to be great. Remove from them all inferiority complexes.”

Dr. Ambedkar on Women:

“Don’t be in a hurry to marry: marriage is a liability. You should not impost it upon your children unless financially they are able to meet the liabilities arising from marriage.”

“Those who will marry will bear in mind that to have too many children is a crime. That parental duty lies in giving each child a better start than its parents had.”

Dr. Ambedkar on Women:

“Above all, let each girl who marries stand up to her husband, claim to be her husband’s friend and equal, and refuse to be his slave. I am sure if you follow this advice you will bring honour and glory to yourselves and to the Depressed Classes”

“We shall see better days soon and our progress will be greatly accelerated if male education is persuaded side by side with female education.”

Dr. Ambedkar on women:

“Unity is meaningless without the accompaniment of women. Education is fruit-less without educated women, and Agitation is incomplete without the strength of women”.

Dr.Ambedkar on women:

“I strongly believe in the movement of run by women. If they are truly taken into the confidence, they may change the present picture of society which is very miserable. In past, they have played a significant role in improving the condition of weaker section and classes.”
