Violence against women and the significance of caste are once again hot topics for debate after the Hathsar horror. And rightly so, since women belonging to the marginalised communities face a greater threat of sexual violence, stats from the National Crime Records Bureau show. In 2018, 2,957 Dalit women were raped across the country. 871 of these victims were minors at the time of the incident. In simple terms, 8 Dalit women are being raped every day across India.
