There is a requirement to attain a standpoint wherein significant issues of Dalit women are addressed such as their lack of voice, which are often neglected by the Dalit movement spearheaded by the males and the mainstream Indian feminist movement initiated by the upper caste women.

The Dalit women are faced with triple intersection oppression based on caste, gender, and class giving them an “outsider within” status. Thus, these women can showcase diverse perspectives due to their standing in society which will help the readers understand the condition of Dalit women in society and the atrocities they battle on a daily basis. The initiation of the Dalit Feminism standpoint marks a social change and encourages empowerment and activism.
