Indian Women liberation Day

Savitri Bai Phule Women Forum and PVCHR organized a women convention on 10 March as Indian Women Liberation Day in memory of Savitri Bai Phule. Pledge of women against all type of exploitation,discrimination and injustice against women and child marriage. They affirm their commitment for education for girl against child marriage.
Dalit women are, like their male counterparts, subordinated by poverty and caste, but at the same time they are also subjected to the patriarchal power that makes them vulnerable to exploitation and domination not only by upper castes, but also by Dalit men. These women suffer from double disability in the Indian society. The first disability of being female is doubled with the caste tag over their head. In all states, an overwhelming majority of Dalit women work outside of their homes – mostly with labour connected to agriculture, which is known for exceptionally low wages.
