A lawyer by training, Jasmine is a self-declared feminist activist who uses her legal acumen to improve the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls in India. She is interested in leveraging new technologies such as virtual reality, and seeks to create audio podcasts in Hindi for youth populations in spaces where talking about sexuality is taboo.
Bodies and Cities is a pilot project that aims to develop a radio show that specifically discusses issues related to Sexual and Reproductive health that are relevant for Indian youth. Bodies and Cities will be implemented together with juveniles of Observational Homes in South of Bangalore, as part of Centre for Child and Law and Community Radio. Targeted end-users will be juveniles below the age of 18 years old. Recorded podcasts would be used in a 6-month radio show and in YP Foundation-sponsored workshops within the community reaching beneficiaries of all ages.
