From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Pramada Menon is an Indian queer feminist activist[1] and co-founder of Creating Resources for Empowerment in Action (CREA).[2]

In 1995, she attended the Beijing Women's Conference, which helped "shape her understanding of feminist activism."[3]

With a group of other women's rights activists, Pramada attended the “Culture, Society and Sexuality” course at the Sexuality Institute in Amsterdam and was inspired to establish a comparable institute in India. In 2000, she co-founded CREA[4] using a human rights framework and working in the fields of sexuality, reproductive health, violence against women and economic justice.

In 2014, Menon released her first film, And You Thought You Knew Me, a documentary that focuses on the LGBT community in India.[5] Menon is also known for her stand up work, "Fat, Feminist and Free" which has inspired other comedians.[6]

Menon's siblings are author Dilip M. Menon and feminist writer and political scientist Nivedita Menon.[7]
