Intersectionality: A Report on Discrimination based on Caste with the intersections of Sex, Gender Identity and Disability in South India

CLPR’s report collates the life experiences of intersectional discrimination in the four South Indian States of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu to understand the relationship between different intersecting identities and various sites of discrimination. The Report finds that individuals who fall at the intersection of multiple identities face aggravated forms of discrimination in their daily lives. These gaps in the legal landscape are best addressed by a single and comprehensive equality legislation that adopts a broad approach and imposes positive equality duties on the State and private actors.
