Reporting: Manager, Programs and Innovations, Sexuality and Disability Program
Founded in 2000, CREA is a feminist human rights organization based in New Delhi, India. CREA works at community, national, regional, and global levels and is one of the few international feminist organizations based in the global South. CREA focuses on building feminist leadership, strengthening movements, expanding sexual and reproductive freedoms, promoting rightsbased approaches to reducing gender-based violence, and advancing the human rights of ‘structurally excluded’ people.
CREA uses the term ‘structurally excluded’ to draw attention to the ways in which societal
architecture prevents certain people from enjoying the full spectrum of rights and from
meaningfully and effectively participating in their communities and decision-making spaces.
