Rape survivor to Social activist- Sunitha Krishnan


If you faced bad time in your life, you will feel helpless but few people are always different.  In their bad time too, they are ready to give help to others. These differences make them “unique”. Today, I am sharing a story of such a unique personality or a Strong women “Sunitha Krishnan”

Ms. Krishnan works in the areas of anti-human trafficking and social policy. Her organization, Prajwala shelters rescued women and children and set up one of the largest rehabilitation homes in the country.

We all are blaming God, parents and society for our sorrows but we are not doing anything to remove other’s sorrows. Even we are becoming reasons for other’s sorrows. In India, Some parents are busy to kill their own daughter in the mother’s womb but few parents are felt blessed to have daughter in their life.

Sunitha Krishnan was gang-raped by eight men when she was only 15. Krishnan has had to deal with all that and more. she refused to be broken and she gave birth to an instituion that assists trafficked women and girls in finding shelter. Krishnan today is perhaps one of the tallest figures of hope in contemporary India.

In 1996, She co-founded Prajwala (eternal flame) with Brother Jose Vetticatil, a Catholic missionary who died in 2005. She provide education to the children of sex workers. Krishnan has managed to rescue some 8,000 girls. Those rescued are rehabilitated through vocational training, jobs and marriage.

She co-produced a film along with her husband Rajesh, Touchdriver—Ente (mine) based on sex slavery. According to various estimates, India has about 3 million sex workers, most of whom are children.

According to her, forced prostitution, sex slavery, marital rapes and sexual abuse have always been a part of the society. “Only the visibility has increased.”

The ‘thus created scenario’ is catering to the commercial rating points of many, she laments.

But is she at peace? Talking about her own incident that took place about 26 years ago, Krishnan once famously said “I do not remember the rape part of it as much as I remember the anger part of it…..I derive power from that anger.”

‘Stigmatise rapists and their families’

“In this patriarchal society, women are stereotyped. We are used as objects to satisfy men. There has been a need of one class (men) to be more powerful over women. This is where the problem begins,” Krishnan says.

“Let us write about men who commit such heinous crimes. Let us be curious to know who the rapist is and what his background is, instead (of finding out about the victim),” emphasises Krishnan over a phone call.

“My time is primarily for those who need my help” she adds.

Krishnan has had the courage to not only fight for her rights, but also force the society to accept her.

In the process, she probably comes across as a stubborn and a “not-an-easy-to-please” personality to many.

At various forums, Krishnan has not only identified rape survivors and HIV-Positive patients but also revealed their current profession.

But Krishnan is not too bothered about the criticism. “I am not here to please everyone,” she insists, firmly focused on her mission to save trafficked women.
