The celebrated glory of Indian independence remains incomplete without women. Contributions that we read till date mention specific women personalities but undoubtedly the freedom struggle was much more than that, it included women from all spheres and milieu. The following paper attempts to bring forth the glory of lost women who contributed significantly in the freedom struggle and delve into the whys and wherefores of this distortion. Annie Beasant, Sarojni Naidu, Basanti Debi, and possibly couple of dozen activists initially in the era stood out as notable women. Most of the aforementioned activists were either spouses, mothers, or sisters of congress leaders (Pal). All those who belonged to an elite and if not elite, however from an educated background. The unsung glory of women’s participation from all spheres incorporates more than what we have read and their sacrifices and struggles remain undocumented within the preeminent record of independent India. These spheres are not devoid of women as commercial sex works or trans women who barely found two or more records in the pages of history to reveal their stories of unsung glory.

Keywords : Middle class women, Indian freedom struggle, Transgender, Trans women, LGBTQIA+, Feminism.
