Dr. Shruti Kapoor was born and raised in India.  Like most women, Shruti has many identities and is exploring them through the various roles she holds.  In her professional life, Shruti is the Founder of Sayfty Trust, an India-based non-profit working with women and girls to address gender-based violence. She is an economist by training, and the mother of a 6-year-old daughter.

In this episode, Shruti discusses being raised as a girl in Indian society, influenced by media and cultural norms… in a supportive family, challenging gender stereotypes she and her brother faced as children… the excitement of moving to a new country to pursue her graduate studies… the support of an uncle and aunt as she transitioned to life as a graduate student in the United States… her advocacy and activism for the safety and empowerment of women and girls globally… the many ways we can use our voices to express ourselves…. and developing the confidence to speak up. (India and USA)
