Priya Tripathi

Priya Tripathi identifies herself as a feminist, bibliophile, survivor and a runner. She believes her upbringing in small town in a highly patriarchal set up has been a blessing in disguise. It helped her to develop perspective on the issues and to make best use of the opportunities she got later in life. She believes women need to develop their own narrative and share their personal stories to mark their presence in the world. Writing about running, patriarchy and Child sexual abuse are cathartic experience for her.
