The role of Dalit women in the struggle against discriminatory practices needs better recognition in society, including among Dalits

In large number of villages, Dalit women have addressed the issue of discrimination in basic amenities. At many places, they have been able to resolve it without severe violence. But this history has most of the times not been written or documented, says Manjula Pradeep
The extent of violence against Dalits has been increasing and one of the major reasons is awareness and assertion amongst them has gone up which has led to increase in the reporting of these incidents to the police authorities. But the question of state impunity and failure to protect the rights of Dalits is still a pertinent question which is being raised again and again by the civil societies and members of the Dalit movement and its supporters.
