This essay interrogates the boundaries within which we locate our historical narratives to suggest a move towards interconnected histories. I argue for the need to rethink the interactions among feminisms and their relationships to imperial and national politics. Drawing upon my research on the history of birth control in colonial India from 1871 to 1946, this essay demonstrates connections among the birth control movements in India, Britain, and the United States.
