SHANTA DEVI-SITA DEVI AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF WOMEN’S EDUCATION IN 20TH CENTURY BENGAL By  Prarthita Biswas

Abstract

The present study tries to investigate the cultural as well as educational development of women of the 20th Century Bengali society which has been observed in the writings of Shanta Devi and Sita Devi concerning women and to examine in details about women’s literary works during that time.It would be fruitful to historically review the short stories as well as the novels of both Shanta Devi and Sita Devi to get a critical understanding about the various spheres they touched many of which are still being debated till date. The study may not be able to settle the debates going on for centuries about women emancipation and specially about women’s educational development in 20 Century Bengal but will sincerely attempt to help scholars think in a more practical and objective manner.

Keywords: Women education, Emancipation.
