Abstract

Abstract Gender and Poverty are inextricably linked and in the Indian context, caste is a vital factor in adding to the miseries of women. In particular, Dalit women face innumerable problems of both economic and social pov-erty and are denied basic human rights of survival and development besides extremes of vulnerability and vio-lence meted out against them. Despite the efforts of the women’s and Dalit movements, they continue to endure violence, discrimination and exploitation. Constitutional guarantees alone provided by the vision of Dr. B R Ambedkar has helped them and dalit men in countering the Globalization with its allied processes was expected to usher in new vistas of escape from caste dominated economic chains for livelihood and enable them for better opportunities. This paper is based on a study carried out in Karnataka on status of Dalit women in the Globalized Era. It was found that Dalit Women have been affected both positively and negatively by the new economic policy, but the negative impacts are more grave, disappointing and have forced the Dalit women to continue to be most exclud-ed, backward and exploited, both in the rural and urban areas, in terms of access to employment, education, basic amenities and quality of life, due to the combined effects of caste based oppression and patriarchal structures of family life. The impact of reservation system seems to be the single most factor for them to access benefits and in protecting their interests in the global era, but even there and with decentralized governance in motion, due to politically vested interests the outcome is distorted in the benefits reaching the needy Dalit women.
