ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I’m a writer and media consultant based in Mumbai, India.
As a writer, my passion for social equality and fair treatment of all people led me to explore gender, sexuality, equal rights and sociocultural issues. It’s what I’ve studied as well—topping my BA Honours in English with a specialisation in feminism from JMC, New Delhi, and completing a Master's in English from Mumbai University with a focus on gender and post-colonial literature. It was a great honour to be recognised for my incisive journalism and social commentary when I was awarded the Laadli Media Award for gender-sensitive writing in 2013-4.
Why Indian Men Rape is close to my heart (and, dare I say, important), and I’ve been working on it since 2013, but most actively since last year.

Five months in, she wrote this evocative poem about her experience.
Why Indian Men Rape is fortunate to have the support of noted advisors, including:
