ABSTRACT


This review of Article 15 explores the problematics of visual representation of caste-based atrocities and tries to bring into focus the triply marginalised position of Dalit women due to the intersectionalities of class, caste and gender. The contrasting notions of Dalit Robin Hood and Brahmin Messiah are developed in course of the analysis.
