[Image Description: A group of Desi suffragettes protesting in India.]

vintagesareeblouse:

Suffragettes in sarees. Very high necked blouses and the brooch that seems to have been common in this period-wonder if the brooches are in suffragette colours.  

One of the women is possibly Sophia Duleep Singh.  The site from where the picture is taken - Edwardian Promenade - is an interesting browse if you are interested in the period.
