She has written a number of articles for newspapers, magazines, and journals as well as contributed chapters to several books including on the girl child and experiences of discrimination in higher education in India. Her body of work includes leadership in several people’s initiatives for justice, in large country-wide women’s empowerment groups, and theoretical work on women’s concerns from the unrecognized perspective of women and girls from the large number of marginalised sections in India. She represents three of them – being a woman, a religious minority (in India), and also being identified with the Dalit community, from among the former untouchables in India.
