I'm going to deal with the notion of places and forms of power. We studied the plight of Indian women. In India, there is a lot of discrimination that derives from the caste system: it's a system of social hierarchy in which the Dalits, also called the ?untouchables' are discriminated and considered as inferiors. But women Dalits are even considered as inferior to men Dalits, and all women in India suffer from violences. In order to illustrate this notion, I will try to answer the question: is the weight of traditions a hindrance to Indian women's evolution?
