Tackling Gender-Based Violence Through Economic Women’s Empowerment

Jitna Bhagani, founder of Shakti.ism and she will survive

In episode 24 of the Impact India podcast, I chat with Jitna Bhagani, founder of Shakti.ism and she will survive.

Shakti.ism is a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers and employs disadvantaged women in India. She will survive is a global gender-equality advocacy project that provides resources to women around the world facing gender-based violence.

Jitna is a survivor of sexual violence. Her lived experiences and knowledge of eradicating gender-based violence has led her down a unique journey in navigating her trauma, and healing herself by building platforms that empower marginalized women and survivors of violence.

In this episode, Jitna and I dive into:

  • The systemic issues that perpetuate gender-based violence
  • How technology is changing the way we empower marginalized communities
  • How she launched her social enterprise during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Addressing gender-based violence with young children
