Hi! I’m Manasa. I’m a Mumbai based lawyer, researcher and freelance writer. My main focus of work is gender equality and eradicating violence against women and children.
I am an alumnus of the School of Law, Christ University, Bangalore, India. From my 2nd-year law school, I have been associated with The Red Elephant Foundation (REF). REF focuses on story-telling, training, tech-for-good and advocacy for gender equity and civilian peacebuilding. Currently, I oversee and lead the Research and Documentation (legal) team here. Getting started with REF was an eye-opener in terms of issues privy to us from childhood, that systematically fuels patriarchy and the continuance of violence against women and children. This was my deciding factor to pursue working in the development sector. I also work closely with World Pulse, a global social network for women and by women. I use this opportunity to share resources to women globally to empower them as leaders within their communities.
I briefly worked the Aangan Trust as a Research and Communications Associate. Aangan works with vulnerable children and families across India who are extremely prone to sex trafficking, labour trafficking, bonded labour, physical and sexual abuse, and lack the necessary access to government functionaries. Working with Aangan gave me first-hand information through stories from women and adolescent girls about the real situation prevailing in India. I also took the role of a Junior Editor with A38, Online Portal for International Law and Journal; where I regularly wrote blog articles on issues of international law and reviewed/edited journals for online publication.
