" My passion for gender equality and spreading awareness about it in every aspect of life is what drives my work. I am extremely excited to be part of the Millennium family, as this will provide me with the platform and the determination necessary to further my goals. Everything I will learn from this fellowship will allow me to advocate for creating safe and queer inclusive spaces across Universities in India. I am eager to turn my ideas into reality through creative team work. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Inaya
Inaya seeks to empower through education. In today’s day and age, independence and self-sustenance is key. Often, women who have been abused, are underprivileged or do not have the ability or the support to fight those who have been denying them their basic rights, do not have the fundamental financial knowledge needed to utilize their earnings and funds appropriately. It is through basic financial knowledge that we seek to empower the women of Hyderabad and do our bit to help them become citizens who are aware and responsible.
About the Millennium Fellow
Anushree N. Murthy is a driven and enthusiastic law student at Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad, India. Coming from a conservative South-Indian family in Bangalore, Anushree has witnessed and experienced some form of social injustice in her everyday life, which fuelled her passion for law.
Anushree believes that human rights are the absolute need of the hour, with sexism and racism so ingrained and pervading every aspect of one’s life, which is further fuelled by capitalistic goals.
She feels strongly about using her privilege to one day make changes at the institutional and legislative level, which she intends to do through her work.
