Pritilata Waddedar (5 May 1911 – 24 September 1932) was an Indian revolutionary nationalist. Being the first woman to sacrifice herself to the anti-British movement, she is described by some as "Bengal's first woman martyr".


Pritilata joined a revolutionary group headed by Surjo Sen in 1932.

To avoid being arrested following an attack on the Pahartali European Club on 24 September 1932, she swallowed cyanide, killing her.


Waddedar's great-great niece is Ash Sarkar, an extreme-left racist ideologue based in the UK, who proudly boasted about her great-great aunt being a terrorist.[1]
