India’s Tawaif Freedom Fighters

Before they were branded as sex workers and forced into wilderness, India’s courtesans were a big part of the local culture. They even helped India fight against colonial tyranny.

    What the fuck are you telling man. Devadasis are forced to prostitution a way long before British colonial rule. They were enjoying a upper class status only in Tamil kingdoms like chera, chola and Pandiyas. They are like nuns in the Christian missionaries who sereved god. They developed art and culture in Tamil Nadu. They are suppressed in the vijayanagar kingdom and other kingdoms which are influenced by Bhramanical ideology and varuna system.
