Navsarjan report on the status of Dalit women

In light of the reality that Dalit women remain victims of violent crime and receive little protection under Indian law, Navsarjan Trust released an extensive report on gender violence and access to justice for Dalit women during the period 2004-2009. With the support of Minority Rights Group International, Navsarjan’s research has demonstrated that Dalit women remain susceptible to violence that pervades their villages, homes and intimate relationships. Dalit women additionally endure precarious access to justice, as they often face case delays and other barriers when seeking to file legal claims.
