Growing up as part of an Indian community, Kruti recognised the inequalities and injustices women and girls face early on and has been calling these out since she can remember. She is particularly passionate about intersectional feminism; challenging views that hide under the banner of "culture" or "tradition"; and tackling society's perception of women which sees them as lesser than men, treats them worse than men and does not give them the same opportunities as men.
Kruti's professional and academic background is in economics and public policy. Over the last 6 years, she has worked at HM Treasury, the Department for Education and the Cabinet Office. She joined FiLiA at the end of 2016 to lead on policy and government engagement, which she hopes will help her to have a more positive impact on gender equality, culture and society.
Kruti is happily married to Richard, also a strong and proud feminist, and they are expecting their first child. She is looking forward to raising her daughter to be a strong and vocal feminist!
