Cornelia Sorabji’s 151st birthday celebrated with a Google DoodleGoogle has dedicated a doodle on its homepage to Cornelia Sorabji, on the occasion of what would have been her 151st birthday.

She was the first female graduate from Bombay University, she was the first to read law at Oxford University where she studied in 1892, the first female advocate in India, and the first woman to practise law in India and Britain.
