I feel it is necessary to write a foreword to this book titled Why has Woman become a Slave?' to fulfil the wish of the publisher.

The ideas found in this book would seem controversial and revolutionary to the common people, whose sentiments and perceptions are different and whose views about social organizations, morality, customs, religion, and religious traditions and the tenets of the sastras are altogether different from rational thinking.
