ANNIE MASCARENE (1902–1963)


Annie Mascarene is remembered as the first woman to join the Travancore State Congress, the first woman to be part of the Travancore State Congress Working Committee, and then the first minister in Travancore State.

Annie Mascarene was born on 26 May 1902 in Trivandrum of Latin Christian parents. Her father Gabriel Mascarene, a low-paid Government servant, nevertheless ensured a very good education for her. She did a double MA in history and economics in 1925, then served as lecturer in a college in Ceylon. On her return after three years she took her LL.B. degree.
