These Mughal Women

This campaign celebrates the women of the Mughal court, who despite their laudable contribution to the subcontinent's history, remain underrepresented.

Contrary to popular belief, Mughal women had real power and agency, unheard of, at the time anywhere else in the world! They were highly educated women who wielded enormous influence; led architectural projects, welfare schemes, businesses, wrote books, travelled alone - all while keeping the Empire at the centre of their interest.
