Tackling the ways in which inequality, trauma and harm manifest within the UK South Asian community 

WHO WE ARE

The Rights Collective is a group of South Asian womxn who are looking to tackle the distinct and often subtle ways in which disempowerment, inequality, trauma and harm manifests within the South Asian diaspora community in the U.K.. 

Womxn and individuals with other marginalised identities (often based on caste, sexuality and gender, for example) are likely to have less power and face violent forms of discrimination from within and outside of our community. At The Rights Collective, we believe it is our duty to dismantle and subvert some of these norms within our own spaces. 

WHAT WE DO

BREAKING THE SILENCE

CULTIVATING A NEW CULTURE

CO- CREATING SPACES FOR SUPPORT

FROM OUR TEAM

"I've always worked in the gender rights space and I thought 'why am I not also working to address the stark inequalities in my own community in the UK?' That's how The Rights Collective came about."

—  Nishma Jethwa, Human Rights Lawyer & Gender Justice Activist
