Many believe that Indian Dalit girls are very supressed. And they are. Most of them. However, recently I just met 100 girls that prove everything else! They are really «leaning in» (Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook expression).
But a few months back they were everything else than “leaning in”. They were all marginalized, modest and according to their culture, not being allowed to making «noise» and some even not to go out of the house. And they had never been to school, even in the age of 10-14 years old.
