Abstract:
During the Second World War, Mahila Atma Raksha Samity was formed in undivided Bengal to Protect women and children from the Scourge of Fascist War. It was a successful initiative of Communist and leftist groups to unite, first, the urban students, and then, the educated urban ladies. Joytirmoyee Ganguly, Renu Chakraborty, Mani Kuntala Sen were the founder members of this samity. Its' main objective was the protection of women and children from the destructive effects of war. Besides, the Samity wanted to make the people politically conscious. But it is important to note that it was basically an organisation of urban lower middle class women and women from the poor section of society. The Samity has little influence on the village area, although a considerable part of rural Bengal had interested the activity of this samity.
