The idea has been endorsed by many celebrities across the nation. My logic is simple. If a population belonging to the same race consists of a monolithic entity undifferentiated in terms of social standardsit is difficult to create oppressive hierarchies.
But if it consists of diverse groups, various parameters both natural and artificially created ones need to be propped up to divide people into groups.
These groups, besides developing strong in-group solidarity, display our-group contempt and hatred.
Beauty like skin color is one such parameter. This division actually acts as a hindrance against the collective effort of women to challenge patriarchy by pitting them against one another. Female Beauty, as projected by the profit hungry corporate media, has therefore been reduced to a euphemism for the objectification and over-sexualization of female bodies.
In fact, the entire notion of Beauty revolves around female bodies. The societal value of a woman is attached to this marketable facade.
This despicable form of structural oppression portrays the sexuality of women in terms of beauty or femininity or a feature that commands respect. This devious tactic of portraying prejudice against women while maintaining niceties is just another attempt at maintaining patriarchal hegemony.
Instead of grouping together to fight this paternalistic notion of Beauty, individual women of the out-group try to fit into the in-group to increase their individual value. The social structure that legitimizes oppression in this case beauty remains firm and unchallenged.
But these women have refused to question the reprehensible portrayal of women as sex objects in Bollywood. Faced with multiple levels of intersecting oppressions caste, class, gender and religionDalit women, already weighed down with insecurity as they are treated as misfits by both upper castes and men of their own community are further burdened by the given standards of beauty and complexion.
It is said that Nandita made Bhanwari her Rakhi sister while the film was being shot.
However, the film was released without being shown to Bhanwari herself first. This is a gross violation of the rights of a rape survivor. And despite being promised that she would be provided all kinds of support, she was virtually abandoned by Das and her entire team.
She is still fighting for justice. This is not the first time that a Dalit gang rape survivor has been exploited by Bollywood. The explicit sexual images displayed in the movie also served the purpose of titillating the masses in the garb of portraying the trials and tribulations of a woman who suffered caste violence throughout her life.
So let us accept the hard reality. It is also not able to give chances to Dalit Adivasi women to express their talent. But they would do nothing in their personal or professional capacity to reduce their agony.
