Dalit is a designation for a group of people traditionally regarded as untouchable. The highest population of this class of people have been recorded in India. Due to their nature of work, they have been, on many occasions, deprived of their basic necessities and rights. Although, in modern times, their rights and necessities are seriously being considered by the government of India and many rules and regulations have been made to protect people who are called Dalits. But Dalit women are more burdened and discriminated on the basis of caste, class and gender. Dalits were considered to be lower class people and therefore Dalit women are even further deprived not only by upper class but also by Dalit males. They had been discriminated many times on the basis of gender and were used by almost all class of people including Dalits itself. Marginalism and racial exclusion of dalits is a burning issue today. This book on dalits goes back into past and looks at the history of dalit alienation. This book will be invaluable to students of History, Caste Politics, Women and Gender Studies, Education Studies, Urban Studies and Asian studies.
