Nepal’s Trailblazing Dalit Feminist

Durga Sob
Durga Sob was just 10 when she realized she was from the Dalit, or 'untouchable', class of Nepal: 'I drank from a water pot that other people used, and by sharing this water, I'd made it 'unclean'. I was screamed at and chased away. I told my mother and she said: "God made us Dalit, that's just the way it is." It was then I knew the pain of being a Dalit, and had to do something to change things.'
