The Non-cooperation Movement was spear-headed by prominent Congress leaders, of course, under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. It was based on boycolt of schools, colleges and councils and put into practice the propagation of swadeshi and picketing. The role of women was a glaring phenomenon in this all-India struggle. C.R. Das and Motilal Nehru differed with the Gandhian programe of the boycott of councils and it led to the foundation of the Swarajya Party. The role of Sarojini Naidu was indeed very significant.
