Julie Thekkudan

South Asia Consultant


Julie joined Equality Now in February 2022. As the South Asia Consultant, she is leading the work in South Asia, particularly the Ending Sexual Violence campaigns.

She was born in Kolkata (earlier known as Calcutta), India and now she lives in New Delhi for many years. She speaks English, Hindi, Bengali and Malayalam.

She holds a PhD degree in Political Studies, focusing on gender discourses in the Christian community in India. For almost 10 years, she has worked in various gender roles in Oxfam India and Oxfam International. She is very proud of having touched the hearts and minds of many adolescent girls and women in their journey for a violence-free life and gender equality.

With deep gratitude to the many feminists who have helped her to be what she is today, she hopes to ‘pay it forward’ intentionally in all she does.

In her free time, she likes practicing yoga and knitting as a stress buster.
