Dalit Feminist Theory: A Reader

01 December 2019

Edited by Sunaina Arya and Aakash Singh Rathore

This book is a study of Indian feminist thought with caste at its centre. It looks at the places where Dalit feminism has diverged from dominant-caste feminism and considers analogies drawn between Dalit- and black-feminist activism and movements. It also examines at length what the legacies of Jotirao Phule, Pandita Ramabai and BR Ambedkar did for Dalit feminist thinking.
