Presentation abstract

The paper is a part of a study done on the political struggle of women in Manipur. Focusing on the case study of an organisation working with female sex workers (FSWs), it locates the hegemony and the complex stratification in the social life. The reflection on the conversation with the FSWs and members of the organisation allows to interrogate the institutional silencing of the dispossess within a framework of rights and justice. It foregrounds the need of an indigenous women’s standpoint to examine the existing epistemology that normalise the voiceless voices and an unchallenged politics in the post-colonial state by employing a ‘perspective from within’.
