Video: Dalit women - intro video from IDSN
This short film brings to light a handful of violations that those who continue to be treated as ‘untouchables’, are subjected to, focusing particularly on Dalit Women who must deal with multiple discrimination due to gender and caste. They also show how Dalit activists stand up for their rights and demand change. The film is a collage of video material from Dalit community video volunteers, documentary filmmakers, and NGOs. The film includes:
Rape and sexual abuse: Dalit women describe how they are abused and raped by ‘upper castes’, often in retaliation for Dalit communities asserting their rights.

Forced prostitution: A 14 year-old Dalit girl in Nepal works as a prostitute because it is prescribed to her caste and in India Dalit girls are made to work as temple prostitutes.
