Writing Caste/Writing Gender: Narrating Dalit Women’s Testimonios
Zubaan Publications, New Delhi, 2006
English | Paperback | 424 pages | ISBN-10: 9381017921 | 20 x 13.2 x 2.6 cm

Description from Zubaan website:
“….The last decade saw the emergence and assertion of separate Dalitbahajun women’s organizations both at the national and regional levels. Excluded from political and cultural spheres, Dalit women’s movements have sought to transform both Dalit and feminist politics in India.
