Suswati Basu – Individual Award Winner – 2007

She fought and succeeded in overturning the caution and has subsequently spoken publicly about her experience at the hands of the police.

She has now become a committed feminist campaigner around issues of sexual assault and is a young woman’s ambassador for the Women and Girls Network. As a 19 year old she is keen to network with and highlight feminist issues from a young woman’s perspective.
