“As a dual heritage woman, it’s really really lovely and important to me hearing these conversations and especially at the end, talking about like the parts where you choose the bits that you want. That was really, really, lovely. I think for so long. And I just realised this today. I’m not often in spaces where it’s, you know, where there’s a majority of brown women who are doing incredible things. And I think today has brought it home for me that I actively need to be in rooms with other like-minded brown women who are absolutely awe inspiring and incredible.”
– Maya Stevenson, Artist & Queer Academic
“These conversations don’t happen often enough. And I’ve also not had these conversations in person for a really long time, to feel part of a South Asian community and to be able to talk about all of these things that are so forbidden and to be reminded that there are so many people who are breaking, breaking those barriers and having these conversations. It’s amazing. I feel like all tingly, it was just an amazing event.”

– Poppy Jay, Podcaster “Brown Girls Do It Too”
“I’ve known Sangeeta for almost 20 odd years. And she’s always been a huge champion of women’s rights, especially in the South Asian community. And I think just this opportunity to see her telling real stories about real people, and meeting all of these incredibly articulate and fluid women has been inspiring, it’s been jaw dropping for me, and I’m really, really happy to be here today and be a part of this.”
