|An important feature of the Civil Disobedience Movement was the large scale participation of women.|
|During the Salt March to Dandi thousands of women came out of their homes to listen to Gandhiji.|
|They participated in protest marches, manufactured salt and picketed foreign cloth and liquor shops. Many went to jail.|
