Thenmozhi Soundararajan, a Dalit-American artist, is using film and media to bring to light the violence suffered by Dalit women under the caste system. Working in support of Dalit activists in India, #dalitwomenfight has attracted a social media following in the tens of thousands. Thenmozhi is currently editing her film, and hopes that it will form the catalyst for a global Dalit solidarity movement.
