Challenge

Dalit women in India suffer from three oppressions; gender as result of patriarchy:class from being from the poorest and marginalized communities;and caste from coming from the lowest,untouchables. Although, discrimination on the basis of caste against Indian constitution and prohibited by many laws, its practice is widespread in rural India Dalits not only grapple with discrimination due to caste hierarchy. But they also live in poverty coupled with all socio-politico-cultural discrimination.

Solution
