Jyotiba Phule Birth Anniversary: Basics Explained

Jyotiba Phule, social reformer, fought against social ills including untouchability and the caste system. He made a significant contribution to women’s empowerment and girls’ education. He was born on  11 April, 1827 and passed away  on November 28, 1890.

He put a lot of effort into emancipating women and ending caste and untouchability. The effort that Phule did to educate women and members of lower castes is what made him most famous.

The two best-known novels by Jyotirao Phule are Shetkarayacha Aasud (Cultivator’s Whipcord) and Gulamgiri (Slavery).

In 1848, Jyotiba Phule and his wife Savitrirao Phule founded Pune’s first school for Dalit girls.

In an effort to secure equitable social and economic benefits for the lower castes in Maharashtra, Phule oversaw the establishment of Satyashodhak Samaj (also known as “Seekers of Truth”) in 1848.
