Open Meeting at which Brian Freeland, Author & Script writer talks on:
WOMEN OF THE RAJ.
When the Colonial Administrators arrived to take over from the East India Company and the Army they were often accompanied by their wives: wives who spoke only English, who mixed only with the other wives, and who couldn’t even communicate with their household staff. Wives who made great demands on their husbands. As one Indian wrote later “I don’t think they realised what a menace they were. If the memsahibs had stayed in Britain there might never have been a Mutiny”.
