If you have examined Google doodles today, you must have seen this that they have honored an Indian woman today. Woman, Rukmabai Raut is one of the first practicing female doctors in British India and is leading a great change in the Hindu institute of marriage.
“Today’s doodle shows the painter Shreya Gupta showing a courageous doctor in front of her patients the work of a skilled physician,” the post said on Google’s doodle.
Apart from this, Rakmabai, the biggest issue, has done on history that giving Indian girls the right to agree on marriage.
Rukmabai lost her father at the age of 8 and married 19 year old grandfather Bhikaji from the age of 11. However, he continued to live with his parents and ended his studies.

After 7 years, Dada told the court that his wife should be with his wife. Rukmabai refused to go with her husband that a woman can not be forced to stay in marriage when she is not interested.
She was probably the first Hindu woman, who challenged the ideas of marriage, was not accepting it as a sacred practice, who accepted the bride’s consent requirement.
This case went for 3 years and there was a stir in both England and India. After all, grandfather won, but Rukhmabai chose instead of going to jail!
Later Queen Victoria ruled the verdict. In spite of this opposition from the conservative Indians, the government encouraged the law of consensus of 1891.
It was because of them that the consent of women in marriage started seriously, and finally the Act of Consent was passed in 1891.
Even after this, 68 years have passed for realizing the idea behind the disobedience of Rukmabai and passed in the Hindu Marriage Act 1955, in which both parties need to agree in the form of binding theory in the marital relationship.
