Together As Sisters
Antony John Baptist
Biblical studies and feminism provide a general framework for this book-a book that meticulously explores important areas such as Dalitism, biblical and philosophical hermeneutics, liberation theology, narrative criticism and biblical exegesis. This book enriches all the aforesaid areas by providing valuable insights into the oppressed life-world of Dalit women in today's India. To put it more specially, the book draws a realistic and metaphorical parallel between the biblical woman Hagar and Dalit women, whose life-story loosely imitates that of Hagar. In this way,it brings out the different types of oppression that Dalit women face in today's society and recommends creative means for their survival and emancipation.
