The unheard role of South Asian women in the feminist movement in early 20th century England

Bao's work is expressly political, questioning the ways in which the casteist Indian society functions, and particularly how Dalit women are perceived and treated. Through her illustrations and art, she challenges the audience to reconsider the ways in which Dalit women are presented and represented from the brahminical gaze of objectification and fetishization. With her feet firmly grounded in anti-caste politics, Bao has stayed true to the credos of Phule and Ambedkar's teachings.
