Today marks the 151st birth anniversary of Cornelia Sorabji (November 15, 1866 – July 6, 1954), who overcame numerous obstacles to become India’s first female lawyer. Cornelia Sorabji was the first woman permitted to attend Bombay University, where she excelled. She then went on to become the first Indian woman to study law at Oxford University in 1892. However, she was unable to practice law in England. Cornelia returned to India in 1894 where she was again barred from practicing her profession. Google today celebrates the 151st Birth Anniversary of Cornelia Sorabji with a doodle. Today’s Doodle by illustrator Jasjyot Singh Hans depicts Sorabji in front of the Allahabad High Court, to which she was eventually admitted.
