Kirthi Jayakumar is a researcher working at the intersection of gender, peace, and security. She is the founder of The Gender Security Project and coded an app for survivors of gender-based violence, called Saahas.
Gender-based violence is as old as the hills. To change something that is so deeply embedded in our thinking, we need to respond, rather than react. Awareness and introspection are the keys to changing mindsets and culture.
