Event Description: Join us at the American Center New Delhi for a discussion on “Empowering Women through Voice and Agency” with acclaimed author, Anuradha Bhagwati. Even though times are changing, women continue to be under-represented in many industries around the world. While there’s talk about bridging the gap and empowering women through equality, they lack a strong voice and agency. Through her personal experiences as a bi-sexual woman in the U.S. Marine Corps, Anuradha will speak about why it’s important for women to work in male-dominated industries and how they can counter sexism. 

Anuradha is the author of the critically acclaimed book, Unbecoming: A Memoir of Disobedience. She is a writer, activist, yoga and meditation teacher, and Marine Corps veteran. She founded the Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN), which brought national attention to sexual violence in the military and helped repeal the ban on women in combat. Anuradha is a regular media commentator on issues related to national security, women’s rights, civil rights, and mental health. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Politico, Foreign Affairs, and New Republic. She lives in New York City with her service dog Duke.

Anuradha is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Susan B. Anthony Award from NOW-NYC, the India Abroad Publisher’s Special Award for Excellence, the National Women’s Law Center Champions for Women in the Military Award, the Vietnam Veterans of America Keeping Faith Award, and the Working Mother Multicultural Women’s National Conference Legacy Award.
