Dalit women constitute a lower segment in Indian society and suffer from dual disadvantages: (a) of being Dalit and (b) being women. These women suffer all deprivations which their caste group as a whole suffer. Besides, they have to undergo additional hardships because of their gender. Dalit women have to struggle harder to secure basic necessities of life, viz, food, fuel and water. The interconnection between caste and gender was not brought to the fore and category of Dalit women figured neither in women's studies nor in caste studies. Admittedly, the problems of the Dalit women have not received adequate attention of the mainstream women's movement. Contrary to the belief of the mainstream women's movement the liberation of the women is not a uniform or undifferentiated domain. There is a general consensus among the contributors to this volume that the Dalit women is a separate category and they have typical problems as compared to other women in our society. The contributors analyse the very real problems faced by Dalit women in different spheres. This study presents a new approach and theoretical perspective for the study of all India social reality of crucial issues concerning Dalit women. This book will attract a very wide readership among those interested in women's studies, Dalit studies and sociology. (jacket). Bookseller Inventory # 109840
