About Me: I am a very socialbale lady who has been married for 26 years and during this pertiod, i have been a women Human rights activist and Gender equality activist. i have worked for womens NGOs and have throuygh the years identified specific issues whcih cause us women to be docile and not be bold enough to claim our space due to commitment to marriage and obedience to spouse even when things are not right. I have enjoyed taking up the challenge of emancipating myself and other women in the same situation. i am a mother of four lost one son. i have been through grief and sorrow as well as Joy and happiness. am currently working on economic empowerment for myself through all odds.

My Passions: Speaking out for oppressed women

My Challenges: Forum to creat my dream and have my voice heard

My Vision for the Future: To run my own institution which has womens empowerment programs

My Areas of Expertise: Gender Equality and Womens Human rights activism
