Human Rights as Practice

Dalit Women Securing Livelihood Entitlements in South India

Jayshree P. Mangubhai

  • Draws upon and debates existing literature in related fields, outlining a conceptual framework of analysis.
  • Socially engaged in critiquing existing theoretical and practical concerns and putting out suggestions for practice.
  • It presents the undercurrents and real practices of livelihood strategies and collective action in a society still deeply rooted in caste hierarchies.
  • The focus is unique, both in terms of a fairly invisible social group being made visible in ways beyond statistics, and the topic of their public-political action.
  • This book also brings to the fore the perspective of the Dalit women involved in the struggle - that was less visible until now.
