Dalit Women Fight presents...
An Evening with the Dalit Women’s Self-Respect Movement

The Dalit Women’s Self Respect movement is India’s largest historic challenge to caste-based sexual violence. In 2014 Dalit women and activist who have had enough of India’s epidemic of caste violence, jumped into jeeps, cars, bikes and rickshaws and traveled state to state in the largest freedom ride to demand an end to caste based violence in Indian history. At each stop activist comforted survivors, confronted perpetrators and called out the corrupt public officials who were responsible for this violence. A result of our organizing the conversation of Indian’s failure to implement the rule of law for the call to end caste based patriarchy has spread to over 50 cities in the last year alone. A national delegation of field organizers working on the front lines to end caste apartheid are in the U.S seeking justice for Dalit women, by breaking the silence on the epidemic of caste based sexual violence.
