Why do Dalit women have to be a part of the 2019 elections for a better tomorrow? Why are they important? What do they want?

On 18 February, over 60 Dalit women gathered in Chennai, to discuss ‘Dalit Women in Politics: Past, Present and Future,’ organised by The Blue Club and All India Dalit Mahila Adhikar Manch.

The Quint, in its Chaupal series, spoke to a few of the prominent Dalit activists and leaders to understand their expectations from the 2019 elections. We discussed not just gender, but political power, multiple levels of oppression because of class, caste and intersectionality.
