Justice for Dalit women
You have reached the web page of a vibrant and evolving campaign that is organizing to resist the most cruel forms of violence and discrimination against women born into lowest caste groups in India. All India Dalit Mahila Adhikar Manch is a platform for women from the community to escalate our voices for justice. From here are born Dalit women activists who have risen to build the struggle for self respect and dignity. We are the fierce young women, who are the force behind the assertions and the struggles. We are the spark. We are the true revolution. We believe in the words of Dr. B.R Ambedkar who said, ". . ours is a battle not for wealth or for power. It is a battle for freedom. It is a battle for the reclamation of the human personality."
