Coming Out as Dalit, Dutt’s first book, has been lauded both critically, and embraced by readers. Dutt’s journey to accepting her Dalit identity as a member of the lowest caste in the traditional Indian caste system also exposes the inequalities it creates from education access to human rights.
Dutt is an emerging figure recognized for highlighting Dalit rights globally and her voice has been instrumental in understanding the realities of caste within the increasingly prominent Indian diaspora. Learn more about Yashica Dutt at: www.yashicadutt.com
