#Dalit #woman beaten up for taking drinking water from upper caste well – via The Times of India

4 September 2014

This is the reality of daily abuse that women from the lower caste Dalit communities face. Many Dalit communities don’t have running water and if they venture to get much needed drinking water from designated “upper caste” wells they are accused of polluting the water and are beaten up as in the case of this woman in Orissa in the link below, or raped and/or killed.
