The Google Doodle today celebrates noted Bengali poet and women’s rights activist Kamini Roy. Today is her 155th birth anniversary. She was the first woman to graduate with honours in British India. She grew up in a prominent family and was well-known for her activism and poetry. "Why should a woman be confined to home and denied her rightful place in society?" the poet once wrote and also worked to help Bengali women win the right to vote in 1926. She was accomplished in the literary field as well and was awarded the Jagattarini medal by Calcutta University in 1929. Kamini Roy passed away in 1933.
