Meet Our Team #WeAreManushyan

About Manushya’s Team

Women-led, intersectional feminists, Manushya’s team comprises women, transgender people, and feminists passionate about bringing positive change to the world and being part of collective healing. At Manushya, we are Feminists from the Global South.

Our definition of the Global South takes into account class struggle. With this definition, we can agree that the Global South is NOT bounded by geographic boundaries but rather a shared identity by people who are at the bottom of the barrel or people living in the lower socio-economic class. Therefore, the Souths can occur in the richest country, and the Norths can also occur in the poorest country.
