Most recently she was a Senior Programme Officer at the Asian-Pacific Resource and Research Centre for Women (ARROW), doing communications and advocacy with a focus on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). She worked with many partner organizations across Asia-Pacific and the Global South and along with them advocated for the full inclusion of SRHR during the intergovernmental negotiations that led to the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals. She has now joined the team at the International Women’s Rights Action Watch (IWRAW) Asia Pacific and is also piloting projects for feminist and women’s rights groups in Sri Lanka with a particular emphasis on groups that remain the margins of the women’s movement for various reasons.
