The Predicament of Women in Ancient India: [00] Widowhood and Suttee

Published: 01.10.2008

Suttee was abolished in British India by Lord Bentinck in 1829/1830; the princely states, not directly subject to the British administration, followed in the course of time (FISCH 439-446). The British penal code (condemning suttee) was taken over by the Indian government in 1947 (FISCH 446-449).
