“Hooray! Another heroine. Thank you so much for Accidental Activist, recently viewed on PBS. I’d thought Mahatma was an exception to the rule that behind every great man, there’s a great woman. But of course, I was wrong!… I consider tellers of her story, such as yourself, as heroic.” –Michael J Regent, Medford, Wisconsin

The story that has never been fully told . . . Kasturba Gandhi lived alongside one of the greatest men in history, but she has remained in his shadow—now she emerges. Gandhi himself said she taught him about nonviolence and called her “his precious jewel” of inspiration. The Indian nation, the largest democracy in existence, calls her “Mother,” but who was she, this Accidental Activist? And what is her connection to women activists today? History Missed This Story.
