The inspirational true story of Rukhmabai who rose from humble beginnings to become colonial India’s first practicing female doctor. Married off at the age of eleven, she pushed back against deep rooted cultural, legal and social injustices to pave the way for Indian women and was instrumental in the passing of the Age of Consent Act which outlawed child marriages across the British Empire. Just what the doctor ordered!
