The Mughal era in India saw the rise of several powerful women who challenged gender norms and played significant roles in shaping the political and cultural landscape of their time. While the concept of feminism as we understand it today did not exist during this period, these women were certainly trailblazers who paved the way for future generations of women to assert themselves in public life.
One notable example is Nur Jahan, the wife of Emperor Jahangir, who was known for her political savvy and military leadership. She was one of the most powerful women of her time and is credited with playing a major role in shaping the Mughal Empire. Other examples include Jahanara Begum, the daughter of Emperor Shah Jahan, who was a patron of the arts and a writer in her own right, and Razia Sultana, who briefly ruled the Delhi Sultanate in the 13th century.
