The Google doodle today shows Chauhan in a white sari with a brown stripe at the edges sitting with a pen and paper in a contemplative pose. Chauhan took to poetry at an early age, publishing her first one at the age of just 9. Google, in a statement, called her a “trailblazing writer and freedom fighter”. Chauhan became a prominent poet and freedom fighter in an age that was dominated by males, it added. While Chauhan used her poetry to boost the morale of the countrymen in their fight for freedom, she also highlighted the hardships faced by Indian women including “gender and caste discrimination”.

Both Subhadra Kumari Chauhan and her husband became a part of Mahatma Gandhi’s Non-cooperation movement in 1921. During the struggle, she became the first woman satyagrahi to court arrest and was subsequently jailed in Nagpur.
