Abstract
This poster is based on a seminar course I attended in New Delhi in January 2017, facilitated by the Miranda House College and the Indian Institute of Dalit Studies. It aims to examine the social hierarchy of caste in India, and the role it plays in the oppression of Dalit women. Dalit people belong to India’s lowest caste, characterized by extreme poverty and social exclusion. While the caste system has been officially outlawed, it remains an omnipresent force in Indian society. Dalit women continue to face acute discrimination due to the intersection of their caste and gender identities.
