Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar
He was a keen advocate of education for women. He rightly viewed education as the primary way for women to emancipate themselves from all the social oppression they had to face at the time.
He founded 35 schools for girls throughout Bengal. The Metropolitan School of Calcutta was one of the institutions. The sole purpose of these schools was to make women self-sufficient and empowered.
He supported Drinkwater Bethune to establish the first permanent girls’ school in India, the Bethune School.
