We are delighted that partners of the GCAP Social Justice Task Force – AIDMAM-NCDHR has launched “Dalit Women Rise for Justice- Status Report 2021”. This report presents a view of Dalit Women’s Status in India as exists today and their struggle in order to access to justice.
According to the new report, Dalit women continue to face violence due to assertion to access the basic resources of land, water, sanitation facilities, education, and payment of wages.
The report documents the nature of response of formal state institutions including Police, Courts and other relevant departments, and the influencing role of informal institutions, including the social groups/neighbourhood from where the survivors hail in cases of atrocities.
AIDMAM, an autonomous unit of the National Campaign for Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR) is a Delhi-based organization working for addressing severe vulnerabilities faced by 80 million Dalit women and girls who lie at the bottom of caste, class, and gender hierarchies in India.
