Prof. Anupama Rao: Babasaheb Ambedkar, Thanthai Periyar, Mahatma Jyotibha Phule were Radical Feminists

Marriage and sexuality, marriage and sexual control become a very important fulcrum for thinking about caste annihilation. That you cannot annihilate caste, this again i think is so very profound in anti-caste thought, that these are thinkers that think the intimacy of caste relationships. Because caste is about intimacy and it is about the withholding of intimacy and sociality from those with whom you could be intimate.

Murugesan speaks on caste and labour in Munnar plantations

From the very beginning that I began working here, myself and many like me were identified only as Chakkiliyars and were made to undertake this particular work (manual scavenging).

Joopaka Subhadra on Rape, Caste, Feminism and Dalit Movement

Bhupali Kusum on yet another crackdown on SC, ST, OBC, & Muslim students by casteist JNU

We want to say that the students who come here, keeping aside the issue of viva-voce, every day, after reading a chapter, when a student writes something, the “progressive” faculty says that “you have come from Hindi medium, from a vernacular medium, we will not let you go from here with an MPhil/PhD.” Who will talk about that psychological violence? Is that not an issue of social justice?

UP: Beyond the Visible

The fruits of political path for Dalit Bahujans, set by Manyawar Kanshiram, have certainly been achieved to an extent. Having said that, it is also true that persecution of Dalits and Muslims in UP are on the headlines every now and then. Caste system, driven by Brahmanical social order, is still pervasive in most parts of UP and not all Dalit Bahujans are able to break out of its oppressive structures.
