Solution

Jyotiba Phule worked for the upliftment of depressed classes and the causes of women. He opened orphanages and homes for widows. He opened the first school for ‘untouchable’ in 1852 in Poona. He launched the Satyashodhak Samaj (Truth-Seekers Society) in 1870 to stir the non-Brahman masses to self-respect and ambition. He supported widow remarriage, which was prohibited particularly among high-caste Hindus. His work, Gulamgiri (slavery) is an important work that condemned the inequlities of caste.
