Attorney, vegetarian and social activist Mahatma Gandhi worked to alleviate poverty, discrimination, the inequality of woman in society and foreign dominance by utilizing non-violence to take the moral high ground away from the holders of power, who had kept the status quo in place. His influence has reverberated well beyond India and helped to inspire our own civil rights movement.

“The only tyrant I accept in this world is the ‘still small voice’ within me.”

 – Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)
