Dalit women demand funds for welfare

Special Correspondent

JAIPUR: Dalit women attending a State-level conference of the Centre
for Dalit Rights at Dholpur in Rajasthan over the week-end demanded
utilisation of resources of the Scheduled Caste Sub-Plan for ensuring
their welfare and economic development, besides rendering social
justice to them.

About 600 Dalit and nomadic women, mostly from eastern Rajasthan
districts of Bharatpur and Dholpur, attended the day-long conference,
which was inaugurated by National Federation of Indian Women general
secretary Annie Raja.

While Ms. Raja called upon the Dalit women to organise themselves and
wage a battle against "patriarchal practices" prevalent in villages,
National Federation of Dalit Women president Ruth Manorama exhorted
the women to fight for dignity and equal status in the society.
