How to use "Sudra" in context?

Sudra is an oppressed and marginalized social group in India. They are descendants of the "untouchables" and have been denied access to most social and economic benefits enjoyed by the majority populace. Sudras traditionally performed menial chores such as cleaning and laundry while living in segregated settlements.

However, over the years their position has steadily declined, culminating in the current era in which they are portrayed as "cursed" and "dirty". Despite this, a small but growing movement is working to change the attitudes and expectations of society, and to ensure that the rights of the sudra community are fully realized.
