If you don’t know about an issue you can’t act against it. Any action for a better world, even small, can make a change. We need change, so let’s act! Girls & Girls Rights Champions are combating discriminations around the world, let's invest in them!
- Khesavi Ramen
Khesavi Ramen is a Mauritian Youth advocate for equal rights, gender equality and equal opportunities. She is currently studying English & French Law at Queen Mary University of London and the University of Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne where she is the President of the QM Feminist Society. Since she was 15 years old she has been raising awareness on issues that girls and women face.
What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?
Since I can remember, I have had a call for fighting for justice and equality. At 15, at an International Conference reuniting girls from all over the world (Women2Women), I came across many shocking examples of inequality and gender-based violence. I knew that I had to act in any way I could to change this awful reality even on a small scale. Currently, as I explore the corporate world as a young adult, I wish to act and combat the many discriminations that persist to exist.
Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.
Through my engagement with Women Deliver, I was able to attend & speak at various events such as the IPU, GEF, AGIP & UNWomen. Having a voice & elaborating solutions to all issues girls and girl leaders face around the word at such High level events, will I hope help implement real change & support girls from all communities.
Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?
In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out and catching up with my loved ones. I also love exploring, road trips and sunsets. I also like photography, graphic design & reading. And most importantly, I like to take time to do any kind of self-care activity!
