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.
