This short-lived periodical is an important document in the field of studies on women's education and gender question raised by the liberal pedagogues in 19th century Bengal. This periodical was published by the Board of Principal's of Corbagan Balika Bidyalaya on Muktaram Babu Street, a school for women's formal education and an acting board to conduct the examinations in Zenana schools established by Pyaricaran Sarkar in 1863 [1868?]. After Pyaricaran's death in September 1875, Bubanmohan took charge of the school himself. Issues related to women, both from liberal and conservative perspectives were featured in the pages of this periodical. Few articles published here even condemned the Hindu social code of conduct for women in general. Bangamahila was in circulation only for two years.
