Srishti Bakshi (India)

IFC 2019 Closing Plenary Speaker

Deeply shocked by a gang rape case in India, Srishti decided to not be a silent spectator to rising violence against women in her country.

She left her marketing career behind and embarked on a 230-day, 2,300-mile walk across India, educating over 100,000 people in local communities on gender-based violence and inequality.

Srishti was named an Empower Women Champion for Change by UN Women and received the Commonwealth Points of Light Award from Queen Elizabeth.
